You've got a point there, but that is a different issue altogether - I'm 
talking about if that would happen if the ads were actually useful ? I for 
example routinely block flash and large banner ads, but I generally keep most 
of the google ads because sometimes they actually contain something I'm 
interested in. So IMHO the question is if the ads can get targeted and 
interesting enough so people would actually watch them (or at least keep 
those who break their own agreements a minority).
