Possibly, but then you don't get the ads... which, like it or not, are
funding an awful lot of Web sites.

There's always the myth that Linux users have no money, and/or just want
things without paying for them...

Better to make AdBlock scripts easy to install (e.g. via
MageiaControlCentre?), and maybe include them (so no download needed)
but not enabled.
