In this post on the Guardian technology blog – Ad blocking is theft, so block Firefox instead | Technology | Guardian Unlimited – the computer editor Jack Schofield not only admits to not having any corroboration for the story “it seems some site owners are retaliating by blocking Firefox. (I’ve not found one myself.)” and that he can’t be bothered to research something on the Guardian’s own website “we sell a Guardian Unlimited Ad-free version, but I don’t expect many people pay for it”. That said he’s happy to say that about the Ad-free version, biting the hand that feeds and all that. Freedom from two parts of journalism there I reckon.
And as an aside the “block firefox” people seem absolutle loons – a click on their main navigation links lead to a site that promotes the idea of “the man made climate change myth”.
