No wonder, and much of this is coming from google's adsense/doubleclick. The internet is being filled with "free" content sites that are little more than pyramid schemes that run by following clicks from site to site and charging eachother for clicks.

You can have your recession. I'm not participating.

I completely agree with your sentiments here.  Ads are simply NO LONGER RELEVANT to anything on the webpages I visit, and this is coming from somebody who doesn't give a damn that google has a monopoly on their data (I use google for EVERYTHING and I know how they're using my information).

Problem with the ads?  Well, I'm underweight.  My teeth are already white.  I can handle simple logic questions.  My colon is healthy because guess what?  I eat healthy.  Your "best" has at least 10 better, free alternatives.  I'm not interested in porn or beastiality.  

 

I don't care about ads.  I can stomach banner ads on mpc.  I'm not afraid of the sidebar ads in Gmail.  Sponsored links in search results?  no problem!  But when the ads <i>don't make any sense</i> why the hell would I click on them?

I guess this doesn't account for the ads that we don't even see because adblock (or an equivalent) has got our backs.

If we don't see them we can't click on them. I wish adblock would block more ads. I am currently at about 75% blocked ads.
