    I have adblock on my mac because I always watch content on the RT site since I became a first member, this way I don't have to watch ads and my money goes directly to RT instead of a middle man.

    When you have ads every 10 minutes in an hour and 30 minute video, and the ads are often 30 secs and can't be skipped, plus 5 minutes ads, and constant buffering and damn banner ads, it really makes the experience shittier. Not to mention no one ever actually has any control over the absolute shit ads that are on their content AND YOU DON'T FUCKING CARE that your ads are fucking obnoxious. With all these things, I'm far less inclined to give a shit.

    I'm a sponsor for RT (for as long as this last subscriptions last because of the recent shitty underhanded schedule change), and I watch 90% of videos on my phone which has no adblock, so you're damn right I'm gonna use adblock on my desktop. Ads are fucking intrusive, and no site ever gives much of a shit about how shitty the ads are. And it's not just ads, there's terrible UI and obnoxious banners constantly telling me to share on social media. Adblock lets me remove elements from pages I go to and clean up my experience. Make your shit less obnoxious, less laggy, and actually give a shit about what ads you put on your site, and maybe Adblock won't be so prevalent.

    I used adblock, selectively.  In general, I don't run adblock, I know that's how people make money, and I'm willing to spend a few seconds of my time to provide them that ad.  But when I go to a site, and there's 57 ads plastered all over the screen, and popups and fucking ads that play audio, fuck that, I'll use adblock.  If the ads make the site unusable, I'll use adblock, otherwise it stays off.  So Youtube's whitelisted, reddit's whitelisted, the RT website's whitelisted.

    they do realise you can whitelist youtubers on adblock? i whitelist youtube and pretty much every site i know wont fuck me in general but you can specifically whitelist certain youtube channels

    but if its not a big site like youtube or roosterteeth or a news site or facebook or whatever, so many fucking malicious ads, fucking hell chrome has BUILT IN pop up block and it still cant handle those ads that go fullscreen and wont let you minimize, with a fake X button so you cant quit them, ads are getting more and more malicious and more easily able to take over your desktop

    im sorry guys, but the internet is dangerous without protection, sure i can go to safe sites and know i wont get anything, but everything else is a risk, adblock at this point is a necessity if you want to go to any site that isnt huge

    i dont adblock youtube and big sites but im leaving that shit turned on for everything else because ads are fucking malicious now its not just popups anymore you mac users

    Its really ironic that they're bitching about people not paying for content on a video that can only be watched by people that pay for their content. 

    I think that people should pay or at least watch adds but still.

      They might be bitching about ads, but ads are cancer... Most websites dont monitor the ads they get, and many times they are viruses, or just spam. That is what ad blocker is for. I had to download ad blocker on a friends pc cus they always had a virus, downloaded ad blocker now dont get viruses...

      Its hard to care about a website losing money when they are legit throwing viruses on your pc.

    People have the right to complain about what they want, especially when ads are so frequent in RT videos (and add block is helpful on multiple sites not just yt) and they're most definitely not gonna go under cause of YT adds they have multiple sponsors, merchandise, dvd's and if they go under that's as much their fault as it is the viewers,


    also if you're a sponsor you're not supposed to get adds on their site anyway

    My mother watches Mountain Monsters! I never realised that that was the show Michael was talking about until they showed the photo with Wild Bill in it, because she got me to watch a couple episodes with her! (Although she's convinced that something/someone messed him up when he was younger and that he actually needs therapy).

    I just want to say, for all of you jackasses that use ad-block. you have no right to complain about the content they put out and it is your fault if AH ever goes under. You are making it so they don't get paid. YouTube ads are barely annoying but you are busy thinking that just because you paid $20 for 6-months of sponsorship (which is nothing in all reality because that's not even 2-months of netflix and spotify is more expensive than that) you are done supporting their content. You're an idiot because, guess what, if you use ad-block then you're hurting their content. Get over it with ads and just deal with it, they are far from problematic.

      They sell like $7 shirts for $20+. They dont get much from ads, they get all of their money from the store, and people that buy their content, ex: lets play live, RT prem members, the store, so on and so on. If you bought even 1 shirt every year they would make more money from you on that 1 shirt, than they would a whole year on youtube ads of you watching.

      Ive seen youtubers put a link to help support them, and all they asked for is $1 from everyone, and then continued to say that $1 is more than if 5000 people watched an ad for them.

    • MrUnFortun4te FIRST Member Star(s) Indication of membership status - One star is a FIRST member, two stars is Double Gold

      $1 per 5000 seems pretty low since that means Youtube would essentially be charging advertisers $2 for that many views which is a HUGE bargain. Their average cost-per-view is $.20, so 1000 views equals roughly $2000 total and about $1000 for the content creator. This, of course, assumes that 1000 viewers watch at least 30 seconds of an ad which means that raw views do not equate to actual ad views. There are unskippable ads that, because of adblock, do not actually equate raw views to ad views. I don't think the store is a major part of their revenue (their most popular stuff is always out of stock which means they don't have a huge supply of merch) and live stuff like RTX and LPL are likely profitable, but I wouldn't suggest they are the major revenue stream (again, if it sells out quick then they likely aren't relying on it to stay afloat). First membership is what originally kept them going when RT first started, but probably serves more to secure content revenue than anything else. The reality is that RT wasn't able to expand as much as they have until Youtube became as great as it is. AH is their major source of revenue amongst all of their youtube content and ad revenue is critical for their income. That's why AH is always talking about producing more videos in a series if the released videos get more views. They can't waste time on content that doesn't make much money. The things that have expanded most at RT is Animation and Let's Play because that content brings in a TON of money for RT for a relatively low production cost. Ad block definitely hurts them and if everyone viewing their content had it, RT would be downsizing big time.

    I use AdBlock for sites like Dailymotion (where there are a few videos I can't get on YouTube) where the ads get so intrusive that my video starts to lag and freeze and buffer. Other than that, I have it set to not block Ads from this site, or from YouTube. I don't mind YouTube ads, I absolutely hate intrusive ads or "Download" ads where an ad looks like a download button. Otherwise I never use it because it takes money away from small time people just trying to break out or even get started on YouTube (like myself).
