ceswiedler writes: "Ars Technica has an interesting piece on why ad blocking is harmful to the sites you love. He doesn't claim it's unethical or immoral, just that it reduces the quality of the site and its content. Tech sites like Ars Techinca (and Slashdot) are particularly affected because such a high percentage of their readers have ad blockers installed.
