I don't disagree that hosts file might not be better, adblock is just a very simple solution, for non Slashdot users, my point is simply that I am not interested in working around the problem, I would be more interested in solving the problem at the source.Clearly ISPs are lacking proper regulation, net neutrality is being allowed to be destroyed, by a lack of response to such things.
Everyone agrees that its easily worked around, a simple adblock extension will do it, but the point is rather more serious, that comcast think its ok to supply you not with the internet, but the internet according to comcast.

Same experience, when map editor came to my town I thought great, but it's been more than a year a just a simple correction of my house number is still not on gmaps
You just proved the advantage of OSM, you can fix this! If you found the same problem on gmaps, you would be stuck with it until they decided to notice.
