On Ad Blockers ➝

Manuel Moreale:

Am I scamming YouTube because I block their awful ads? Would I be scamming YouTube if I muted the video and looked at something else while ads were playing? What’s the scam here? Who is getting scammed?

If using an ad blocker is scamming publishers that rely on advertising revenue, then I expect everyone making this argument to have the pop-up blocker feature disabled in their web browser.
