    Is this from that Wonka event that people were upset about?

        Of course, one could argue that a Willy Wonka-inspired event that ended with angry parents and crying children is more authentic to Dahl’s novel than any of the recent Wonka movies.

        this was funny.

            Why do so many people on Lemmy think iPhones don’t have ad blocking? It’s an OS feature and there’s like a dozen ad blockers available that all work with the stock browser.

            I swear this is like the 5th time I’ve seen a comment like this on Lemmy. I swear no one that complains about iPhones has ever actually used one…

              Yep I’ll be honest never used one. I’ve had ad blocking on my android for probably a decade and it was a struggle for the average android user to have it up till a couple years ago. The walled garden of apple I assumed the ad blocking was just as hard and likely harder than doing it on android.

                Yeah iOS has had native support for content blocking since iOS 9 back in 2015. You just install any ad blocker you want from the App Store and you get full desktop style ad blocking in Safari. Also of course you can use DNS based as blocking as well to block ads in apps etc.

                I imagine there is a big conflict of interest from Google with Android ad blocking since they’re essentially an advertising company and run by far the biggest ad network in the world. I’m kind of surprised Android supports it at all to be honest, but good to hear there’s good support now.

                Fuck ads!!

              Maybe try Firefox instead. I’m on the lemmy sync app and it loads articles natively through it’s own browser, but I guess it doesn’t block ads because the site was complete shit, like you said. However when I opened the article in Firefox not a single ad loaded.

              No issues for me using NextDNS. I’m a big fan. It blocks everything way upstream at the DNS level so I don’t need to worry about configuring my devices. It’s basically a lazy pihole. I used to run pihole but moved to a new place and couldn’t be bothered to set it up again. No regrets, one less thing to manage.

              I’m using AdGuard on an iPhone and there are zero ads in the article. You should get a better ad blocker I’m sure there are good ones on Android too.

    Have you seen the other pictures? They’re hilarious. What a nightmare. People have got to quit paying money for sketchy shit they see on facebook.

      I hope people don’t hate on the staff too much, they are as much victims of the event organizer as anyone. Poor bastards, Id have scribbled personal contact detail for all the organisers I knew of, pinned them to a wall, and left.

    Fun fact: there was only 1 woman oompa loompa in the gene wilder version of Willy Wonka, and the actress’s name was Pepe Poupee

    Now someone needs to recreate this event and sell tickets for $90.
