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.
This is the message:
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.
