Microsoft Aims to Block AdSense

Don't titles rule! 'Extremely Critical' Flaw Threatens Internet Explorer Users was announced a few days ago. In that article, it tells users that "Microsoft is recommending that users turn off the "Drag and drop or copy and paste files" option in Internet Explorer and set security levels to high for the Internet zone."

A thread at WebmasterWorld discusses how this "security fix" recommendation by Microsoft, will make Google AdSense ads invisible to those who take this route. Of course, the rumors begin that Microsoft did this to try to hamper Google's AdSense revenue. :)

I believe Ads are an important part of internet. A lot of sites are providing free quality content and services based in ads of all kind. Now most of them (like mine) are using Adsense. Blocking ads will reduce the numbers of sites with information, news, blogs and other.

This seems to be the most stupid ideea MICROSOFT ever had - and it seems they are doing all they can to kill others that are smarter than them. /Quote Personly i hope that we get a AD blocking software that can target those anoying ADsense Ads so one stops seeing them, when out surfing the web /unquote Do you prefer instead of adsense 3 pop-up window for each page? Hosting and domnains are not free!!! they have to be paid somehow? Isn't enough that 80% of webmasters are working for free to deliver quality websites?

Really, I don't care if that is how you make your income. I would rather see all these Ads blocked because I ignore them anyway. I don't care if you all starve because of blocking them.

You should lose the privilege of reading our sites too. Get the heck off of our sites. You don't deserve our helpful web pages of info.

People with attitude like Scott Roknich really suck. They should pay for all their content if they don't want ads. Stupid short-sighted people like this don't deserve a relatively free web experience. If they had to pay for every single article on the web, they'd change their tune fast. I say, bring on the non-intrusive text-based ads. I don't mind showing some respect for the web site owners. I'm NOT advocating over-use of in-your-face ads, but to wipe out every single non-intrusive ad is just plain disrespectful to the site owners working hard to provide helpful info to the public. People who can't tolerate "non-intrusive" ads don't deserve access to helpful web pages.

I own a large web company. We get 95 million visitors every month to our kids websites. These websites provide educational games, articles, online textbooks, online classes, interactive solar system, interactive body, original educational movies, original educational music, and on and on. All of this is provided completly free of charge. We have children from all over the world. One family called our office from India, in tears, as they each got on the phone and thanked us for what we provider, because they could never afford it if they had to pay. Our goal is to provide every child, in every corner of the globe with the highest quality educational tools, completely free of charge. Guess what happens if you block our ads? We go away. We cannot exist without advertisements. It is much more than just blogs and articles that would disappear. It is high quality content, that is making a difference to children all over the world. Not that I am in any way demeaning the importance of blogs and articles. When you use ad blocking software on our websites you are robbing a child of their education, you are doing real damage. I understand that ads may annoy you. But that is the price you pay to use these sites. It is an unfortunate attitude to say "so what, as long as I get what I want, who cares about anyone else" We live in this big fish tank together, and should be considerate of one another.

I use a very good adblocking hack on my home computers and all the computers at work, I also hack all computers i personaly work on to not show adsense ads, but my reason for blocking these ads is in my opinion a very good one, I place adsense ads on my websites and i'm very paranoid of clicks made by family members, friends, coworkers or any one else that might use these computers. I was kicked of from adsense because a coworker that i don't get along with started clicking my ads very agressively after I warned people at work about not clicking the ads on my sites.
