    Who here actually uses ad block add-on's that prevent advertisements from showing for you?

    I understand its useful in allowing you to watch more videos at one time, rather than waste 30 - 60+ seconds watching an advertisement that you probably aren't even going to click on. But these ads also help support YouTube creators. Does supporting your favorite channels make you not use ad block or do you use it no matter what channel your watching?

    I personally use adblocker for everybody and I assume people use it on me too. I don't like ads being forced down my throat, especially when I wanna listen to a music video or a quick how to.

    I do but in my opinion, i think the ads should have something your interesting in. Like gaming, sports, travel, etc or better yet show other YouTube channels that you might like.

    I want to support Youtube creators so I don't use Adblock and I don't have any plans on using it. YouTube is a great way for someone to make it a career out of and if everyone's using adblock, then that takes away from the creator. If the creator isn't making enough to live off of, then that means less videos as he/she will have to find a job other than YouTube, and that limits the videos being uploaded.

    I use it for everything other than Youtube, because I don't want to screw over fellow Youtubers
