I'm on MY PC on an internet connection that I fucking pay for. You better fucking believe I have absolute control over what is and isn't displayed on my screen. You don't see Tivo forcing consumers to watch commercials, do you? I'm sure you think everyone should be forced to sit through the 40% of television programming that is commercials.

It's not the same, because first they pay for a potential, they aren't measured on a per-visitor basis like sites are on the internet. And they also know that even if you usually skip commercials, over time, you are likely to be exposed for it provided you watch TV. On the internet, you use adblock. Zap, you never ever saw it. Web-sites with un-obtrusive ads do not force you to read or click them either. There's a reason there is something called a banner blindzone, you know.

And you still didn't say ANYTHING about how this is not in any way similar to pirating software. Because whoops, I guess you're out of adolescent arguments.

That's such a fucking stupid thing to say it doesn't need to be refuted.
And no, I will not just fucking let that just go. Tell me why it is not the same. Come on, because I just fucking know you have nothing to argument back with here other than ALL CAPS INSULTS. I bet since I corner you on this you won't reply, either. You think ads are just a big fucking joke to websites? That they don't really matter? Then why are they there? Do you think sites like having this dilemma?
