Can you name a single free ad-blocker for which you have to fork out cash?

As for data, if you have a smart phone you give up data. Every time you log on to your electronic device, use your credit card, or perform any other kind of automatic transaction, even if you just fill out a customer satisfaction form at a shop you give up data. If you are registered with a clinic and your health records are stored electronically, guess what, you give up data. If you have an email address, Microsoft Office, any other purchased software, Skype, etc you give up data. Plus, god forbid you should use standard search engines, or have any social media presence, or be on C-D... And that's just a tip of an iceberg. I'd imagine you'd have to have some serious background in computer securities and forensics and jump through a dizzying amount of hoops to limit the trace you leave online to barely audible. And you worry about an app that at least prevents all those companies that steal your data on a day to day basis from interfering with your peaceful use of YouTube? I suppose, whatever floats your boat.

All I know is that I haven't had a single add on YouTube or any other pop up add in years, which, if you ask me, works for me.

As you capitulate to their terms for payment for access to something that was free



Most video services do not provide free content, Youtube is one of the exceptions. You are complaining about something that doesn't cost you a dime.

How about paying for the privilege of shopping on Amazon?

The product on Amazon is what they sell including their paid video service.

Or checking the weather?

I usually use the local station and it has ads....

how about reading your texts?

Included in your phone bill.

However some consider paying for a website that has no competition for some inexplicable reason a foolish idea

There is numerous paid video services that compete with Youtubes video, most do not provide free service.

Most websites have a TOS especially ones you register for.

I support NN Boer and so does Google and nearly every other major content provider, you are barking up the wrong tree and obviously do not understand what NN is.



If your ISP made an agreement with YouTube and was blocking or throttling similar services/content that is an example of breaking the NN principal. Youtube itself since they are only content provider cannot break the NN principal without the cooperation of the ISP. If the ISP was going to do this logic dictates they would throttle YouTube in favor of their own video services.



Understand?
