I won't ever click on any ad -- especially when none of the advertised services are available in my country -- so there really is no harm in filtering them out.
Now, if holding an account on the DW Forums required some monthly, or even weekly ad clicking, I'd have no problem with it. At the present the forum rules do not deny users from blocking ads, nor do they force me to view any ads or click on them, and therefore I choose not to see ads and not to click on them.
So, do you intend to choose your right of making a donation towards helping to keep the site going?
I am pleased these advertisments give us the potential to help DW. Aren't you?
