Linus called adblock users scummy

Was this on the WAN show? Because I missed the latest one.

Yes.

 

Technically, using AdBlock makes you a dick. You are bypassing the advertisements that provide revenue per view/click to the host because of your own convienence.

Ehm, as if "scummy" was the worst insult you can get on the internet...

Either way I an't wait for youtube donations to be a thing so I can be rid of ads with a clean conscience.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please 🤨

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

No, because you are scum for using adblock. You're taking money out of his pocket because you want to block ads.

I think it's fine to use it as long as you turn it off for sites like LTT, Tickld, YouTube or anything else where you are supporting people who make the majority of their money from ads.

I know, Linus is such a scumbag for wanting to support his family and trying to stay alive.

So go somewhere else. Someone with an attitude like that, isn't exactly welcomed around here.

I should be studying.

We've been over this... I made a rant like last week. Like seriously? Fix the way ads get in the way and annoy people and go back to how they were years ago where they were just there. Until then, i'm gonna use adblock. Wanna fix it? Content providers need to go complain to where the ads are coming from.

i use adblock, but i whitelist content creators that i enjoy. this would currently be linus, emma blackery and luke cutforth. other times, they would get so little out of me, that i cant be bothered. on facebook, i aditionally block some parts of it that i cant stand, like the right menu, with all the apps and crap, and the stuff below the birthday notifications...

Right, what I do is that I have adblock on at all times, if I am on a website in which i both like and they are not cocks with slapping ads everywhere then I disable it for that domain.

I know some mods, he wouldn't get banned for saying any of this. He is just speaking his opinions, although he is acting like a cack while doing so.

I didn't say quality. I said content. They just read verge headlines you don't need sound boards and multiple laptops and mics and 1080p and to force ads down every body's throats while calling those who avoid it scum.
