It was stated on another forum by a member of both geekzone and this other forum that using ad blocking technology on geekzone was illegal and is theft.
I want to make it clear that the statements made on the other forum and here (by me at least) are purely based on the statement of the illegal nature of ad blocking and nothing to do with morals, ethics, respect for the site / staff etc. Those aspects should not come into this particular discussion.
So, is the use of ad blocking technology illegal on geekzone?
My main concern is that I utilise ad blocking technologies on a proxy providing internet access to the company I work for. I do this because at no extra cost, it will result in ever so slightly lower bandwidth costs, ever so slightly better bandwidth utilisation for work related purposes and ever so slight increases in employee productivity. As far as utilisation of company resources go, overall, ad blocking will have a positive effect therefore it should be done. If however, ad blocking is illegal on sites like this, then this will need to be reviewed.
