  1. I loathe advertising. It wastes my time. Let's recognize nothing is really free, and we pay for content with repetitious, bandwidth hogging, obnoxious advertising. There has to be a better way.


  2. There's a reason youtube red has no ads. You're paying to become the customer, not the part-customer part-product hybrid you are as a free user, force-fed ads on the videos you watch. While I agree that paying for services you find to be either useful or of good quality or both, it's never the easy thing to do, like some people in here taking it all for granted.

    A free internet is not Free.
