I personally don't use ad blockers, and I very much disagree with the usage of ad blockers. Ad blockers kill the monetization that the websites we all frequent need in order to pay for overhead, and allow them to continue to provide the content we enjoy.
The sad thing is the intent of ad blockers is to prevent the dangerous, or overly intrusive advertisements from ruining our browser experience. Well looking at pttrns.com the advertisements they have are subtle and in the background. I don't see a need to block the advertisements.
<\sarcasm> what a loss <\/sarcasm>
I actually feel they have a good collection of past and current content. A useful resource.
