I read this weird post over at Download Squad that a guy blocked Firefox users because they use Adblock Plus to filter site advertisements.

If you visit his weblog, it’ll redirect you to a Why Firefox is blocked page. The guy equates your decision to skip over the ads as “stealing” content by viewing the original material without the ads.

Am I the only person who thinks that this guy has made a big mistake by blocking Firefox? Don’t website visitors have the right to see a website content according to their own requirements? I know many people who browse in text-mode. This guy should have blocked ’em as well! It’s like you block a visitor who is using the NoScript extension to block Scripts and flash content on your site.

By the way, when did site advertisements become “content”? Let me know what you think about this guy.
