I was horrified to learn of the existence of the monetizr package, which adds advertisements to R functions. The package goes against the entire philosophy of open source and the spirit of the R community.
Luckily, I was able to construct a fix- the adblockr package.
Use freely to get an ad-free experience
For example, imagine someone locked the useful
multiply_by_two function behind an annoying ad:
The adblockr package offers the
freely adverb, which converts the
multiply_by_two function back to give you an ad-free experience:
The package also includes the
block_all function for removing all ads from a package. For example, once the next version of broom is monetized, you can block all ads in the package with:
If enough of us use this, it will hopefully send a message to the greedy
monetizr maintainer that ads have no place in R.
