Glad to see Acceptable Ads option

Ad blockers for me are a guilty pleasure. I know content creators need to make money, but in general, if their ads move, flash, overlay, or are generally annoying, I will block them. I'm not crazy about the fact that I'm blocking all ads - I don't care if I see unobtrusive ads - but I can't live with all the ads that have become so irritatingly obtrusive. The acceptable ads bit is a great solution, and I'm glad to see it. I also think enabling it by default is the right call. It's easy enough to disable, and means that people like me - who may not always read upgrade notices - get the feature. I don't get those who say any and all advertising is bad. Sites need money to survive, ads are how sites make money, acceptable lists reward those with ads that do not hinder visitors.
