Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

At work we got infected by a ransomware that got in via malware ad from a normal web site. The malware delivered the package in 2 steps, first a stub and then later a signal to "call home" to get rest of package and start infecting.
After installing a lot of ad blockers I noticed that network traffic decreased by 20%, something I confirmed with my own home setup.

No big surprise there. I couldn't imagine trying to surf without adblockers.

Me either!

The other day I happened to look at my uBlockOrigin count (Win 7 Home 32 bit desktop) and just reading my Yahoo email, over 100 ads were blocked.
On a small device (7" tablet or 5" phone screen) any ad could be accidentally tapped and send me somewhere I don't wish to go. One of the first things I do on android is install two or more other browsers to try.
