"Gosh. All that wasted time, adding popup blockers and ad blockers to browsers when people really don't even want them"
You are probably being sarcastic, but I think there was a time a few years ago when people really overwhelmed their visitors with ads (lots of in your face ad blocks, pops up, etc) and that was annoying even though the visitors didn't mind seeing ads on some other sites that had them in the sidebar or at the end of content. But site owners have realized the error of their ways, and on most content sites I see ads that are quite discreet but still visible enough to generate revenue. Let's just say people have become better at ad placements.
