designing a user interface to enable users to tell their user agent to
ignore such "content" ends up being more complicated and problematic
than supporting the feature.

for people w/ limited abilities, needing to spend any realestate or
access option to disable a feature which will most often be abused and
explain to users how and when and why to disable or enable it is
expensive.
