A door-to-door salesman comes to your house. Do you:
a) Wait for him to finish his pitch and consider buying?
b) Listen politely, tell him no thanks, be cordial?
c) Slam the door in his face?

If you answered other than c), now imagine that when you opened the door to let in a friend, the salesman walked in too. He is now walking around your living room looking at your furnishings, which cleaning products you use, inspecting your rubbish, and going through your underwear drawer reading all the labels. He's reading all of your receipts, checking out how often you buy sanitary products, and of which brand. In 3 days time, he'll come back with a truck full of flyers for products related to what he found out about you, and put them over every window, through your letterbox, in your mail (because he's affiliated with the post office) and your newspaper will now be 200 pages thick, 150 of them being adverts.

Now, how about we install a peephole in your door so you know not to open it up when the salesman comes around? That's Adblock.
