Comment Re:No tears shed for intrusive advertising (Score 1) 385

I agree fully - but just think, what happens to the sites that *don't* do this? What about the ones that *don't* use blinky ads, pop-ups/pop-unders, and all that? AdBlock blocks all ads by default, so even the people who don't do the annoying ads and shady adware schemes get punished. I'm not saying that I blame anyone for using AdBlock - I'm just saying that not everyone trying to make money off of ads is contributing to that mess.

Your assumption is wrong. There are FSF-endorsed projects which play Flash/Shockwave content. It'll be able to play Youtube videos through that. Plus, if worse comes to worst, you can just download the plugin from Adobe.
