Wow, my advert-free search engine comment got a fair bit of negativity on Hacker News. Apparently I should think about all the poor writers trying to eke out a living from the advertising on their blogs. Not that I was saying advert-driven search engines should be banned - librarians don't put shopkeepers out of business because they're doing different things.

@michaellewis On that basis they shouldn't have any issue with you using an ad-blocker! 😂
