Every time I get a new computer I see how long I can go without an ad-blocker. Starts out okay, but within 2-3 days there are just too many auto-playing, flashing, popover distractions. I feel bad, but the ads make me feel worse. If ads could be low-key text that is targeted to my interests, they could add value. As it stands, there are too many obnoxious, intrusive, and irrelevant ads to make it bearable. (This is why we can't have nice things).
