Today on facebook, every third post was an ad. I'm not kidding! That's a lot of ads!

And then I got an ad from Alot. I could not help myself. I'll take permies' tiny ads over facebook's annoying ads any day!

For me, an Adblocker is a necessity for using the internet in a browser these days… (I use uBlock Origin).

I have adblockers. It blocks all the side ads on facebook, but not the "sponsored" ads in my facebook feed.

Needless to say, when I post things for the permies facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/PermiesCommunity/), I never click "boost this post." I figure having "sponsored" show on any permies post is going make most permie-like-people hate it/us!
 
Now I am super curious what sports would be like if we allowed drugs and tiny ads.
