When it is so easy to install ads filtering technology, attempt to extract money from users unable to do so can be aptly described as extortion.
And for those not blocking the ads out of respect of LWN, this is not economically viable: instead just buy an extra "starving hacker" LWN subscription, this will get more money to LWN while costing you less in the long run. Adding intermediary always increase cost.
