You guys may not have take this into consideration, but one of the main reason to use and ad-blocking program is to avoid excess flash animations on a loading web page; not because of the download time increase, or the band with usage, or the plain dislike of ads, but because on old PCs all those flash components make it almost impossible to view pages like Newgrounds.com without insifferable lagging.
This may not be a problem for dual or quad-cores and such, but not everyone has the means to upgrade their PCs in the near future.
Also, what's with the insults?
Yah I have mentioned the lag issue, goldfish just came in and said "If you can't run the little ads how can you run the movies and games." Despite what they may think some of the ads they run can be like a whole mini flash movie and cause lagging and you can't turn the quality down on some of the ads like you can with most of the movies/games.
Now if all the regular ads were like the blocked ads, just pictures and not like full animation like the AQ/Dragon Fable ones, people like us wouldn't have lagging problems and wouldn't have to block them.
Also I recently tried running the ads again but every time I would come back after a few hours firefox would be at 100% cpu usage and I would have to close it.
