The Whitelist issue: No more Forbes articles for me

I have been reading Forbes articles on Sustainability / CSR for a few years now and mostly enjoyed them. But over the past months I have been hindered by this blockage from their website administration to Whitelist Forbes from my ad blocker to let them show advertising.

Forbes trying to force whitelisting

Today this happened again and I decided to delete my Forbes RSS subscription. I use my ad blocker in the Chrome browser for a purpose. To not be overloaded with ads that I am not interested in.
More and more websites have been doing this and I will avoid these sites altogether from now on because I believe this is an irresponsible corporate practice only intended to earn them easy money with their advertisers.

And if Forbes prides themselves to be an advocate for Sustainability / CSR by promoting these topics they should reconsider this malpractice of forcing readers to whitelist their site.
Bye bye Forbes. May you prosper without me as a reader from now on.
