I do not use an adblocker or maintain a hosts file. Usually, the sites I go to aren't too bad with ads anyway. I have to admit to becoming annoyed when I have to wait more than a few seconds for a web page to finish loading due to ads/videos/feeds/etc. If the content is worth it, I'll wait or move on and let it finish...if not, then it's goodbye and on to the next item.

As for the ads themselves, I pretty much ignore them and skip when given a chance.

I agree that they paid for ad space/time and have the right to pitch their wares in a nonintrusive manner, that is a quick loading visual/text in a predictable place. If I'm interested, I'll click, if not, then I just ignore it. What I hate is the 'in your face' approach where you have to click/skip through their pitch before viewing what I came there for.
