The plot thickens for the "I want to burn YOUR data up" ads and their websites.

Now the websites shoving those ads in your face want to make you pay for using an adblocker on their site:  http://www.zdnet.com/article/sick-of-ads-now-you-can-pay-google-not-to-see-them-plus-sites-can-charg...

So, if you don't let them burn up your data with their streaming garbage that you will never even see or benefit from (e.g. the HTML5 videos that Exede Brad referenced and that you never see but that burn up your data anyways), these websites now want to make you pay them, supposedly because of "lost revenue."

I am getting to like my controllable speed limited internet connection exponentially more as time goes on.

Pay them to not burn my data? No thanks, I just won't go to those sites. They want me to view their ads, they should pay me for the excess usage. I think 10.00 per month from each no blockable ad containing site should cover it. :P

When I run into a page that blocks my viewing it because of my adblocker, unless it's something VERY important, I close it.  I can't think of any webpages I've been to that are important enough to pay to see them without ads.
