They snooze, we lose

from here

Ad companies' problem with ad blocking is partially of their own making. If ads were safer and less intrusive the people wouldn't mind so much and ad blocking wouldn't be as popular as it is. 

The ad companies are taking a different approach, of course. They use tracking because they think relevance is their main problem, and they take entirely insufficient steps to tackle safety because they think that's someone else's problem.
