Dewayne,

I’ve been writing about ad and tracking blocking for the last month an a half.

My latest, at the bottom, speaks directly to the market-hostile anti-adblock mentality from which Patel and others in the tracking-based advertising world (which includes publishers like The Verge) come from. I’d respond to it directly if I had time, but I’m in wall-to-wall meetings here in Prague.
