    I'd like to disable AdBlock (at least for Phoronix), but the methods that a lot of the ads use are unacceptable to me (requiring me to click to see the page, gross overuse of animation/Flash, data mining my browser history to offer related products, etc.). Yes, I can turn on Flashblock, but then few ads get through and I'm left seeing a bunch of Flashblock placeholders.

    Sorry, but until advertisers stop being evil (not holding my breath), AdBlock stays on.

    Indeed... adblock stays on. Phoronix is just aweful with it off and with it on the grammar is still quite horrible enough to not merit any donation from me. I mean good grief often some of your sentences don't even make any sense at all!

    Is there a plugin to block unrelated mid-sentence rants about plugins I might be using?

    Ad blocking is not about depriving someone of their income. It's about protecting my privacy. If your business model centers around letting other companies invade my privacy, then your business model is broken.

    I can't believe you complain about grammar when you don't even know how to use a comma...

    I'm not asking you to turn off AdBlock... Nor am I the editor of a popular yet often annoying website.

    If you find it hard to believe that I could miss a comma occasionally... you must be awfully sceptical of just about everything.

    At least you don't have to view advertisements I post or pay me to view my lazy grammar . Heh, to think I used to try to stay on topic on this site LOL.

    It's spelled awful not aweful, don't complain about grammar. Not to mention Michael is German so English is likely not his first language. Besides, benchmarks take a lot of time and effort for little reward.
