It was really odd as I read this I was thinking to myself this sounds awfully a lot like the arguments that spammers gave me when they found out their account was turned off. Of course it's not fair to lump them into the same category as that because they place these ads on the sites and not just cram your own space full of stuff. I think this guy needs to take a step back though and really look at what some people are doing that may or may not be members and see it's a reason for the ad blocking. The over abundance/overkill of advertising on a web site. The advertisements that cause malware infections. The tracking that goes on. I believe Ad blocking would be less used if advertising were more responsible - even just by solving the malware issue alone.
