Stupid Crusade – Block Firefox to protect your revenue!

Seems someone out there really thinks that a browser that blocks ads is theft. So they’ve outright blocked all Mozilla Firefox browsers and are advocating others do the same.

Software that blocks all advertisement is an infringement of the rights of web site owners and developers. Numerous web sites exist in order to provide quality content in exchange for displaying ads. Accessing the content while blocking the ads, therefore would be no less than stealing.

Their message gets richer too… so check out the entire thing:

Never mind that ad-blocking is available for just about any browser, and most Mozilla users are savvy enough to work around being blocked… what boggles my mind is how these people think that blocking an entire browser will increase their ad revenue?

Of course, it seems clear that message is intended to drag the users into the politics of the issue, and is not an honest attempt to increase ad revenue. Sadly for them though, most users that see this message are going to be solidly on the other side of the argument… and pissed for being blocked!

Way to gain sympathy there guys!
