Submission + - Adblock: Adapt or Die (networkperformancedaily.com)

boyko.at.netqos writes: "An editorial from Network Performance Daily on the current controversy over Adblock. FTA:

"It is true that Adblock blocks ads — and therefore, revenue. It is also true that it's a piece of software that runs on the client's computer — and the only person that should decide what software runs on the computer should be the owner of the computer.... Capitalism makes no guarantees whether your business model will succeed from one day to the next. Adapt or die.... The current business model of annoying the person you want to buy your product is failing."
