    “Consumers appreciate the idea of a ‘free’ Internet, but this comes with a trade-off: publishers need a sustainable revenue model, meaning that it becomes essential to add subscription paywalls or rely on advertising to maintain free access to high-quality content,” the official TrustPid website says.

    Counterpoint: ads enable shitty content and disinformation to fester. How this whole “websites need ad revenue to survive” bullshit has become normalized by websites/companies that sell your information just for their own profit. Its no wonder why browsing these sites without an ad blocker makes them nearly unusable.

    Not to mention that with ads, nothing is actually ‘free’, its just that you’re the product and they’re selling you.
