"As online advertising becomes ever more ubiquitous and unsanctioned, AdNauseam works to complete the cycle by automating Ad clicks universally and blindly on behalf of its users. Built atop uBlock Origin, AdNauseam quietly clicks on every blocked ad, registering a visit on ad networks' databases. As the collected data gathered shows an omnivorous click-stream, user tracking, targeting and surveillance become futile." #ad_blocking #unique_spin #ethics #morals #bullshit #patterns_insufferable_tech_douches* #browser_extensions #i_am_not_spam_i_am_professional_pattern #i_am_benevolent_but_screw_you_youre_a_dick_pattern #pub

classic hypocrisy. his ads are fine but all the other blocked ads are bad and potentially malware? Either mass ad blocking without care of malware is wrong or it isn’t. #patterns_insufferable_tech_douches* #patterns_my_side_is_so_obviously_right_let_me_use_fallacies_and_insults_too #hypocrisy #ad_blocking #pub
