My other thread was terminated with a little chiding from the person who just posted prior to this message, admonishing me for starting two, similar threads.
For the record, when I posted this originally, it was immediately flagged for moderation.
Since moderation is rather cryptic on here - meaning - there was no reason given for my message being flagged, nor an 'if' or 'when' it might ever see the light of day.
So I simply viewed it as most expedient to post another kinder, more gentler version.
Regardless - my point is quite valid. And my posting was / is an authentic query into the 'why' of things.
I see no reason for smoke and mirrors, or for concealing the truth.
I guess my issue is the otherwise blatant misrepresentation of this product.
After all, I don't know about any of you, but I installed Mini because it purportedly possessed 'ad blocking'.
But all ads are not blocked, now are they?. And unfortunately, they are more blatant and in your way than the ads experienced on regular Opera for Android.
.......I do concede that everything in this world needs some sort of funding to survive.
But why? Why is Opera misleading the public?
Guess it's kind of like "mmmmmm - Donuts" instead of "mmmmmmm - cholesterol and sugar laden calorie bombs that'll blow your hips out". lol.
Since Mini only blocks ads that it feels like blocking, this posting now becomes a request that Opera accurately advertise to the public.
Maybe something as basic as "Mini - that blocks all ads except those that we need for money"
"Opera - without pop-ups (but supported by the usual general Internet ads)"
lol - obviously there are much more attractive ways to tell the truth, but I hope you understand my meaning.
Why would that be so bad?
