only a few mentions of the security risk allowing unknown flash content to render?

  • adblock by default.
  • site is whitelisted when it earns trust of viewer

since most foolishly experience the interweb in an admin context it is cretinous to not-adblock by default.  malware launching platform = bad.

no mention of ad-hiding (where nefarious ad content downloads, renders, and on complete is hidden (removed)). hmmmm intellectually dishonest much?

that g-cache guy self-identifies as a spammer (SEO) so it was delightfully entertaining reading his “reasoning”

if you don’t want people using your media in the way they deem best for themselves don’t place it in the public sphere:  basic authentication.  solved.  otherwise: twit, please choose seppuku

antiadblocking: fail
