I was surprised to hear a few people mention that they use an adblocker on Weddingbee… doh!
Do you use an ad blocker on Weddingbee? I’m curious: why or why not? And would you consider turning your adblocker off, just while you’re on Weddingbee?

I said “nope” but I do have a popup blocker but I don’t think that is the same thing?
I don’t think it has ever blocked a popup on weddingbee though, it alerts me when it does.

Nope, but I don’t have any at all… it’s never been a problem for me, most of the sites I go to don’t have obnoxious advertising. In fact, I think the only one that has pop-ups is time.com. Odd!

No, IIRC chrome extensions don’t work in incognito mode. I’m pretty hardcore in regular Chrome and Firefox, especially toward flash-based advertisements, so they would probably be blocked if I weren’t ashamed of my addiction… >.>
It’s not a problem, though, WB doesn’t have those obnoxious intrusive ads that take up your page and randomly start yelling/screaming/singing/shilling crap. At least not that I’ve noticed for the latter, as I tend to browse with my speakers muted.
Random, unrequested and intrusive advertising makes me angry. I guess that’s why I stopped watching TV. It’s one thing for regularly scheduled commercials, but then they started with the popovers and cut-ins and hey-I-was-watching-that-and-I-missed-what-he-said-you-jerks!…

Yup, I have an adblocker on firefox, so it gets used for everything–I don’t turn it on or off. I feel bad that webpages are missing advertising money because I’ve blocked the ads on their page, but honestly, I’m not gonna turn off my adblocker–too much effort to remember to do so, plus I hate looking at ads. I just recently got on weddingbee on another machine that didn’t have an adblocker and was shocked to see all the ads!

Nah, and I actually like the WB ads.

Nope, no adblocker on my computer. I don’t mind the WeddingBee ads.
Post # 9
Oh yes. Definitely yes. I can’t stand ads and will do anything in my power to block them. No exceptions for WB. 🙁

I don’t think I’m blocking anything on Weddingbee, but I’ve also never seen any pop-ups. So far, the advertising has been helpful/unobtrusive and I wouldn’t see the need for any adblocker.

Nah, as long as ads don’t pop up then I don’t mind putting up with them.

I’ve considered it, especially when the site loads so slowly and it’s always the ads! That gets annoying after a couple threads…

The weddingbee pages have been loading slower than usual lately, and it seems to be the ads that are holding it up – if this trend continues I will be using an ad blocker.

I don’t use one. I don’t mind the ads here, and I’ve actually clicked one here and there. I’m on a wedding site, so wedding related advertisements are acceptable to me.

I don’t have an ad blocker; however, on principle, I wouldn’t use it anyway for a site like this. On the free community sites where I am a member, I make a point to click an (innocuous) ad every few days anyway. I mean, I am going to window shop at J. Crew anyway; I may as well get there through the Bee! Basically, I am under the impression that it helps keep the site going, yes?

Have to second the last two opinions–if it keeps going slower and slower, I’d be more apt to use an ad blocker.
