Yup.

That's about the long and short of it. Got some guy who works in marketing and advertising (gob spit) having kittens over it on another forum. Was fun to watch, d-bag.

They continue with world domination. I really don't care. I turn off adblock just for sites that i like (OC3D) the rest can stay blocked. If they were discrete i wouldn't use adblock, but because you can't open anything without having a stroke it stays blocked. It may keep ads adequate.

I don't have adblock and rarely get ads. Idk why everyone comolains
But Google stepping in may mean I start getting​ more ads now that I think about it. Since many companies are going to be creating more that follows the guidelines.

How many times you want to watch some epic review, and then have to w8 30 seconds for some movie trailer?

Never. I get to skip after 5 seconds every time. Had that same issue even when I had adblock

Having to wait 5 seconds is already not acceptable.
