I always get popups accusing me of using an ad blocker trying to guilt me into disabling it. But I don't use an ad blocker, I use a third-party-script blocker, a tracker-blocker. So a compromise would be: show me ads, but don't use third-party technologies that I know nothing about to secretly track me around the internet. I feel like that's a fair ask!
