But tom is making less money when people are using adblock, which they're most likely referring to.

I keep speakers disconnected from my work computer as a precautionary measure.

Also, I didn't see this cleaning ad that you speak of.

For me, adverts are a crushing reminder that I have no money. I shall keep adblock on until I can afford things- in which case I will buy something from the store as well. it really makes no difference on my part as I am broke anyway.

All advertisers pay depending on the estimated number of views, not actual views. Adblocking doesnt change this one bit.

I don't use AdBlock anymore. I did until I realized a couple years ago that even if my contribution to this was minor, I was preventing the website from making money. Not only are you does this affect Tom, but also the users who have submitted movies and incorporate the API. So essentially, if you are using AdBlock you are hurting this website and its community.


Need to make an updated sig.

Now using Adblock is different. Different, because it is worse.

I disagree with mostly everything you say, but I disable ads on Newgrounds only. Disabling ads on youtube is perfect, and even better when you disable ads on porn sites. Mmmmm....no worries or alternate pages opening on their own....

Whoops! I mean I keep ads on when I visit Newgrounds. It's my way of supporting the site, occasionally clicking an ad just to give Tom more money. I actually enable ads on most sites that I like. Except youtube. I have youtube ads.

Nope - All I see is just your typical animated video game ads.

LOL at people sucking Tom's dick over the redesign by telling people to not block ads. Here's the thing, advertisers are only going to use websites if they generate revenue for them. So if people are using adblock (which takes time to setup right) then they're probably not going to buy shit anyway.

I mean, er, yeah, your redesigns great Tom, sorry for not buying that holiday to Greece, *suck suck*.


The preceding post was probably made when I was wasted. Only a fool would think of it as fact.

I only keep ad-blocker off for sites I care about, like this one. I'm just glad they got rid of the huge ad on the front page covering everything and replaced it with some quality art, even if you can't easily change it.

Now using Adblock is different. Different, because it is worse.

Ads nowadays work based of information harvesting. Google Analytic. AdScene. Ad Plus. Bing spider bot. Yahoo bot. Countless other crawlers. Not counting tampering bots and shit yet.

All perform data harvesting upon unauthorized acts. If you call blocking ads is stealing. So as unauthorized data mining. Which is worse?

Oh wait! Newgrounds is getting paid by these companies to make shits legit. I see.

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.

I understand that Tom, Wade and whoever running this site have families to feed. But transparency ads would do more fairness for the users.

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.

Theft my ass. So betraying your user's info to the harvesters is legit too? Hmm, this world is so black and white. The last time I checked that NG was still a transparent site.

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

So I should stop using Greasemonkey too then? >.> I disable all the ad sections and user signatures.

I've never seen an ad over the tank like people have said they've seen, either. Is this because I live in canada ?

I'm a communist using ad-block and I'm proud of being one.

Bite me fuckers.

I'm still gonna pay more than I would ever with ads after buying something from the holy store.

So you are thieves-friend?

I love Newgrounds with all my heart. But I hate and disgust at assholes like you sir.
