The internet is no place for advertising.
I take it then that you are a subscriber to Slashdot --- and to every other site that you visit on a regular basis.
Sort of. Slashdot allows users to optionally disable advertising if their non-monetary contributions are awesome enough-- which mine are I guess. I assume that there are no ads to block, but I wouldn't know because the ads are blocked anyways. A belt-and-suspenders solution.
