I HATE ads with sound. God damn that shit pisses me off, especially when you can't find where the ad is, so you just got sound playing on your computer from nowhere.

Haven't had any problems with the ads, so no problems from Oceania. Come to think of it, with Newground's busier background, I've just been blocking out the ads mentally altogether as of late.

Adblock users should be arrested. Are you against piracy?
Now using Adblock is different. Different, because it is worse.

You see, hosting websites costs money. A LOT of money. The more visitors Newgrounds gets, the more energy the servers use and the more they need to pay. However, if all visitors see these small and (usually) unobtrusive advertisements, the website pays for itself and Tom can eat.

Now when you visit the website with the advertisements disabled, you are using the content that costs Newgrounds money to make, you are taking the bandwidth that costs money as well, but you are NOT earning them the money they deserve.
This is theft.

If you love Newgrounds, or if you love the internet. Stop using Adblock.

o.O piracy is free shit stealing, ad-block plus is stealing from tom cause not letting him make money through ads so your against piracy for not using it.
Anyway been using ad-block since 07 so tom only got 2 years of ads shit from me ;p
i stopped watching tv and using only internet to get away from ads now internet become a million times worst but with adblock it's all good again ^.^

Anyone else understand what this user said? All I heard was "blah blah blah, I use adblock so Tom can't make revenue off of the ads on the site blah blah blah.

I see ads with the little sound symbol on them and play buttons too I think. But they ner start automatically for me.

Also adblock makes Tom sad. I never use adblock on this website. No.matter how many ads are put in.

Not more than 10.9 should be perfect.

And eventually one day when NG gets shut down because Tom ran out of money to host NG because he kept paying out of his pocket due to less ad rev, users like you using adblock plus will look back...

...but then again you're a '10er so you won't appreciate the true beauty of this site

You're using the site. That costs Newgrounds money. If you don't agree with the advertising, don't use the site.

You don't know how long I have been here my child, you do not know. I wouldn't brag with 2008 either, it's not impressive yet. And Tom won't be shut down because of a collection of Ad Block users, he is a successful man, so do not worry about his wallet and worry about your own.

I'm pretty sure it loads a random add when you refresh the page. But I've been getting adds with sounds on newgrounds too. It really sucks, especially when you're watching a movie and the add starts playing with sounds that's 10 times louder then the movie.

You're right. Using ad-block directly costs the people making something, whereas piracy is much more subjective.

You don't pay for the things you receive... How is that unlike piracy?
