The onwards and upwards march of the ad blocker continues http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-35460785 Once again, like most of you, I hate the intrusion of ads while I'm trying to use my computer or my telephone. On the face of it, these ad blockers should be welcomed by all consumers. However, the people who will really be laughing are the banks, retailers, debt collectors, payday lenders et cetera who will be pleased to see the Consumer Action Group struggle and have difficulty paying its bills so that its very existence is endangered. This forum like tens of thousands of small hobby and enthusiast forums all over the world count on the small amount of advertising revenue to keep their heads above water and to pay their bills. We have hundreds of thousands of people who come to us every year and either simply benefit by reading all the advice and all the experience on this website or who actually get involved in discussions and ask the questions and get the help they need to stand up to the bullying and unfair treatment which is handed out every day by the companies that we all have to deal with. If this forum goes out of existence, those hundreds of thousands of ordinary individuals will lose and the companies that treat them so badly and which dominate them every day will win. If you have a choice, please don't use ad blockers – not only for this forum – but for all the small websites everywhere and for all the ordinary individuals who use them – everywhere – for every kind purpose. If you feel that you do have to use ad blockers, then maybe you should consider making a donation to the site – maybe not just once, maybe on a regular basis. We do our best to help you – but we can't do it alone. We need you to help us
