Who'd have thought charging people $3 to remove the need to pay for other unrelated services would feel bad?

I hate ads as much as the next guy, but people gotta eat in our capitalist society. So if you are using a service, you need to pay for it, either directly (with money) or indirectly (with personal data or ad views).

Edit to add: If ads on a service are bothering you enough that you want to block them, then stop using that service.
