Re: Ads?

If I never visit your site, and never click on your ad, then perhaps you can explain how I'm freeloading?

You're right, bandwidth is not free. I'm paying for mine. Why do you expect me to pay for yours? If you can't turn a profit, then go out of business. I'm not obligated to support you.

Funny this is the same logic (or lack thereof) used by
spammers to justify flooding our email with their crap.

Not at all. I'm not trying to profit from anyone, and I'm only using bandwidth of websites that are making themselves available. Good try though.

Wrong! It's the exact opposite! Spammers are stealing and riding the bandwidth which WE pay for to flood us with their adverts and wares. I pay my ISP for bandwidth, and spammers are using my paid resources to force ads on me.

This is exactly what this system is attempting to do. They are not any different than the spammers. You got it exactly backwards.
