@aadil Though I agree with the intention: Why not instead visit (and pay for) just a few of these sites and, by providing them with actual money, make sure they can survive with a funding model more sustainable and ethical than, say, ads and tracking? 😉

I definitely pay for subscriptions to sites I use regularly. Paying for a subscription to every site however, would be prohibitively expensive.

@alexjgriffith Yes, definitely so. 😉 That's why we possibly need different funding approaches (micropayments? cheaper subscriptions? BAT/#brave? ...). I'd gladly pay a lot more for online content if payment was reasonably safe (in terms of privacy) and easy (in terms of handling).


@z428 @alexjgriffith @aadil
Please do some research on Brave and why it's model ads nothing to the world.

@neb I actually did. Yet pretty much all of the articles on that subject were rather biased rants by people who obviously dislike Brave per se.
