I read the article in full. I think it fails to make the site owners themselves accountable for their own problems. If your consumers are actively seeking out and turning off functionality contained on your website then maybe the problem is with that part of your website in the first place. You can't force people to like ads and you especially cannot do so by trying to guilt them into it. The article and "experiment" is almost childish, it seeks to affirm an obviously biased opinion.

ArsTechnica is a site I like but there are many like it on the Internet. I do not pay for it because it does not present anything unique I couldn't find somewhere else. Put simply, many websites cannot sustain themselves because they are in a market with limited demand and high competition. I'm sorry if the truth hurts to other site ops out there but trying to guilt your visitors into annoying themselves isn't a successful business model. The computer isn't like the television, advertisers and site owners need to start understanding that.
