So something i’ve been wondering for a while now, why do we even have ads on this site? They do nothing accept lag out scream readers and just be a general annoyance. Also, i’m pretty sure this site doesn’t earn money, so there’s no real need for them anyway. Currect me if i’m wrong though.
I'm not actually sure, though I suspect its part of the cloud flare hosting, perhaps Sander can field this one?
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)
I think there were ads since before the days of the Cloudflare hosting, but they wer always at the bottom of the page, unless something's changed recently.
Inless I'm wrong there are resources this site uses that aren't free, and since the site earns no money, what money the ads earn them help pay the bills.
I myself don't see the ads, I don't have an ad blocker, but I do use the mvps hosts file and it blocks lots of ads and other unsavory sites.
Yeah, when i’m on my computer I use ad block +, but I have yet to find any good ad blockers for IOS.
I suspect the ads are needed to keep the site going, as someone said, so I don't mind them personally.
For ad blocking on iOS I can't recommend Adguard enough. It's free, just uses the Safari content blocking feature so doesn't mess with your system's VPN settings and uses the standard filter format that adBlock and uBlock uses.
