"Congratulations! You won!" Ad melissoccer 6/11/12 6:52 PM
Had this ad on the side of my screen. It played its audio automatically and kept flashing really rapidly.
Can anyone tell me where to report this? I don't think youtube means to have this sort of ad playing...

Another dead beat promoting Adblock while the rest of us pay for the service he uses.

And just how many of those ads are you clicking on? How many of their products are you buying? Signed up for a membership in that Mormon dating service yet?

Well actually the dating service is pretty good.

You called it.

Rest of us pay while you get a free ride

Would you care to share how much you're paying while the "deadbeat" gets his free ride? And exactly who are "the rest of us"?

First keep in mind that I have Firefox and I've had block more than 2 years now. The REST is the ones who pays for the websites (not just YT) by putting up with the ads. Websites get paid to run the ads and don't care if you click on or not. They also know when your using adblock and therefor don't get paid when you visit the site. The REST of us do.

Let me know if you still don't understand what it is I'm trying to tell you. Because I want you to realize the full impact of adblock has on not just Google but all websites.

Your ignorance is showing...

1 - "First keep in mind that I have Firefox and I've had block more than 2 years now."

2 - "The REST is the ones who pays for the websites (not just YT) by putting up with the ads."

Would you kindly inform us how you manage to fall into both categories? You're either 1 or 2. You can't use Adblock and be one of "the rest of us putting up with the ads" at the same time. Pick one. Can you spell hypocrite?


>>They also know when your using adblock and therefor don't get paid when you visit the site.

Actually no, they don't. The ads are simply blocked from displaying, locally. Your browser doesn't wave a flag and say, "Hey, I'm using an adblocker here."

PS - "putting up with the ads" does not pay the bills. The advertisers pay the bills, and they pay on a per click basis. Look it up.

Be more then happy to explain. I've used it for 7 months and it was great. It's disable now.

Wrong! Trust me they know when your using adblock. Ask any YT partner if they get paid for adblock. If you want me to go into the specs on how that's done I'll send you a link that goes into great detail. It would be way out of the scope of this forum.

Out of a 100 people who would see an ad maybe 3 will click on. Do really belive these web sites could survive like that. Were do you think that moneys coming from? You don't even have to be a geek to fig that one out.

Sorry I'm on mobil right now and have to answer in groups.

But yes I know how to spell hypocrite. I have spell checker and dictionary right here. LOL

You'll have to carry on without me. I have far better things to do than sit here and bicker with you over something this petty. Especially when you have no frigging clue what you're talking about. I'll leave with one final comment on this:


"Ask any YT partner if they get paid for adblock."

I don't need to ask, and of course they don't. They're paid for their ads by the click, and if a user isn't seeing the ad at all, it's damn well guaranteed he isn't going to click on it. It doesn't matter if it's hidden by Adblock or a piece of duct tape.

You say look it up? I've been there done that wrote source code for it and push it out already.
Re: "Congratulations! You won!" Ad Craig... 6/12/12 7:21 PM
Sorry you have to move on it was starting to get fun :). See you in the next debate.

This is one of the blogs were programers  discussing adblock which convince me to just disable it
