I'm probably in the minority, but I whitelist every site I enjoy, however I don't remember ever in my life clicking on an ad intentionally.
And when I leave adblock turned on in a site, it's because I don't want to support it at all, in any way. Even if I accidentally end up in that site. It's very much purposeful.
That auto clicker does seem like bad juju. However, I'm of the opinion that the entire ad click model is already broken, and it has always been broken, because supporting people's livelihood through ads no one is really interested in at all is dumb as fuck in the long run. Maybe something better will come along some day. In the post scarcity Star Trek future there will be no ads.
