Sympathy for the slightly lesser evil.

It’s difficult to feel sympathy when faced with a popup image that says ‘You’re using an ad blocker, our business can’t survive this technology.’ If your business relies on intrusive advertising that makes the web UX unbearable, then your business has deeper problems than my ad blocker.

‘No problem, we’ll just sell ads’ is an expression of contempt. I don’t want ‘content providers’ to starve, but I don’t want to enable poisonous web advertising either.
