so pay for a sub or don't visit the website. hosting, traffic and journalists aren't free resources.
And neither is my time cleaning off a damn PC after (insert whatever site here) allows a malicious ad to infect my system, potentially compromising my data! I wouldn't block ads to begin with had that little problem came about. Don't give me that crap about paying for a sub if I don't like it. Telling people to pay for a sub or deal with possible malware infiltration might as well be extortion.
I say that if Neowin or any other site that feels people who use ad blocking software are really, truly hurting them monetarily, then implement detection of ad blocking software and ban us freeloaders outright!
