Banish Web Ads?

        "Here's an article about a new invention whose function is to banish web ads," declares Jim Hamm. He goes on to elaborate, "Now I don't enjoy obtrusive, flashing web ads either, but I wonder if we use something like this that blocks all web ads do we eventually lose free Internet websites? Web advertising provides financial support for many things we enjoy on the web now for free. For example: Google search, Gmail, etc.

        "What do you think? Is this a good or bad idea, all things considered?"
