not a single time has a “hey, fuck you, you’re using one of those adblockers” interstitial tried the approach of saying “we ensure our ads are unobtrusive, lightweight & malware-free, so please consider not blocking our ads,” an approach which might actually get me to consider it

the fight you’re trying to fight is *not* against the users using adblock; it’s mandatory security hygiene at this point – it’s against other advertising-supported sites and platforms which have been abusing the privilege. do better and maybe things can change

(the actual worst part about adblocking is the only people trying to create a potentially sustainable alternative (such as distributing microtransactions to websites based on yr history) are some technolibertarian bro’s pet web browser nobody’s ever actually going to want to use)
