Forbes and ads – the bad apple in the basket

Do you have ad an blocker?  Do you want to read an article on forbes.com, but they insist you turn off your ad blocker?

Don’t do it! Forbes.com is littered with ads,  most merely annoying, but some downright malicious! So do you just forgo forbes, or risk getting infected with some malicious software?

Well, the solution is easy. Turn off JavaScript before you visit forbes.com. No ads, no prompts to disable your ad blocker! Just read away…

I acknowledge that some websites depend on ads for revenue, but sites like forbes.com is the real reason ad blockers exist. It only takes a couple bad apples (like forbes) to ruin it for the sites who depend on legitimate ads.
