176 daveime "Unused computer power" Just imagine, all those little CPU cycles, already charged up with electricity, all dressed up and nowhere to go. No wonder the CPU gets hot, it's all those cycles vibrating out of frustration at being unwanted, unloved, and most importantly unused. No, Salon, that's not actually how computers work.
63 whozurdaddy I think theres a bit of a war going on with sites like Reddit and these "news"y sites. They like that Reddit will get you there, but they dont like that your easily distracted to go to other sites as well. Ive never disabled an adblocker for any site, nor will I. The content isnt that important to me, and there are alternative ways around their silly pop ups. What I fine ironic though.. if they can make those "Disable your adblocker to continue" popups...then why not just use that same tech to put an ad on your screen anyway.
41 abrownn We have an "Adblock warning" for this sub that lets users know when sites force people to deactivate their adblockers, but we will dicuss altering the warning to cover sites that opt to mine with users hardware as an alternative to ads as well (in addition to adding Salon to the warning list, of course). If anyone spots a site that's been posted to this sub that is currently hosting malvertising or a cryptominer, please reach out to us via modmail and let us know!
39 protoopus if the user opts in.
8 Guildensternenstein As if I needed another fucking reason not to read it.
3 Esdarke Hey y'know what, fucking take it. At least I'll know you're doing that instead of having some fly by night OPTIMIZE YOUR MOBILE BROWSER NOW ad try to install youhaveavirusnoreally.exe on my shit to do who knows what.
4 Ketchupkitty If being hyper-partisan wasn't reason enough not to go to that site.
16 PTC36 I stopped reading Salon when they started posting pro-pedophilia editorials. That's certainly a threshold of lost credibility for me, apparently not for some others, but I remain unsure why anyone still reads it to be honest.
2 tomkatt I'd avoid Salon due to this, but if you're inclined to read articles on their site, you can completely ignore this by right clicking the notice and choosing "inspect" or "inspect element" depending on your browser. Then in the inspector that opens just right click on the "`<div id="adblock-notice" class="style__adblockNotice___2VzZn">`" element and choose "delete element. From there you can browse the site like normal for the rest of your session while disregarding this stupid nonsense.
2 hemingray Site uses something called Just block that and you can still be ad-free and miner free.
2 Leprecon To be honest, I think this is genius. They want to monetize their content and people are blocking ads. Paying a 15$ monthly fee to read the three articles that are linked on reddit makes no sense. The ideal would be a payment platform where you pay cents to read an ad free article but then everyone would have to cooperate and share these cents. Having a payment platform where you pay fractions of a cent per article you read is super difficult to organise. This is basically the same but instead of money you pay electricity. I love the concept where you pay with electricity and CPU cycles. In a way it is the ultimate equal payment platform.
6 Rluswlenoesp Slow down and hear me out. I'd rather do this than look at ads...this might be the solution to shitty ass online advertising.
