But, because you're open about it and obviously care about the experience, I've added to my exclude list and therefore see your ads. It might be quite cool to have some unobtrusive alert come up when someone visits with an ad blocker, invite them to read a post about why you're carrying advertising, and then invite them to add you to the exclusion list. There are several sites and blogs I read that I respect enough to re-enable ads - it's just I forget to do it.

April fool aside, surely the problem with ads on tech blogs is that most users will be running AdBlock or similar extensions?
