I've been wasting time online since long before adblockers were a necessity, so it's pretty annoying to have obnoxious, obtrusive ads hidden and then get nagged about it ;) This is especially bad for mobile browsing when the ads actually slow down page loading (for me anyway) and can cause misclicks.

I don't mind a compromise, though. Something a lot of forums do is offer a VIP membership; 10-20 bucks for a year of no ads and some cosmetic bonuses (username style, avatar size, special title, etc)

I figure I'll be posting at CivicX for a while, so I don't mind dropping a bit of cash to support the site and not have to deal with the adblocker guilt trip on top of the page.

Update: Here is a relevant XenForo add-on. It'd pay for itself after just one use.

I second this. I used to help support forums and on a forum that did not and does not nag about ad blockers. Which will be remain on forever given the chance don't mind paying 9.99 per 6 months or so for the removal of ads.
