BlockIQ Escalates War on Ad Blockers

http://www.technewsworld.com/story/83436.html

As consumers turn to ad blockers to avoid advertising on their mobile and computer screens, marketers and content providers who depend on pitches to pay the bills are searching frantically for ways to counter the pesky programs. BlockIQ offers them one.

BlockIQ, owned by AdSupply, which recently merged with Adaptive Medias, has launched BlockBypass. The software can detect users of the popular ad blocker AdBlock and perform a number of countermeasures, including circumventing the ad blocker.

Websites can configure BlockBypass as aggressively as they wish. They can just educate a visitor about the harm of ad blockers to websites that depend on advertising to stay alive. They can refuse to serve content to a visitor until an ad blocker is disabled for the website. They also can choose a nuclear option and bypass the ad blocker altogether.

"The incredible growth of ad blocking has reached the tipping point where sites will no longer be able to operate," BlockIQ CEO Justin Bunnell said.


Web sites need to have NON-IRRITATING ads. End of story. Then ad blockers will mostly decline. Kind of simple, really.

A good percentage of the "good leftists" are rightwingers laughing their asses off

What the percentage is, I don't know, but some of the stuff people post is just.....so over the top, it HAS to be a rightwinger. The rest of the "good leftists" are so politically naive, it hurts.
