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.
