Adblock Plus now steals ad space from content creators

Adblock Plus have announced that they will start serving ads over top of the ads that are being blocked by it. In other words, they are stealing ad space from the sites you visit.

My recommendation has always been to whitelist the sites you normally visit if their ads aren't intrusive. A couple banners here and there don't present much of a problem. Here at RS we don't run popups or video ads. Just images and text that don't cover the main content.

In any case, if you run Adblock Plus you should immediately uninstall it and use something else instead. I'm sure someone can offer some suggestions of some non-sketchy non-thieving ad block plugins.

No matter what you do, please consider whitelisting RS which helps support the site. In fact, I have found banners that run here to be quite useful! For instance I totally forgot about the Warcraft movie opening date, but a banner notified me of it the day before. Another time, I saw a banner for an Under Armor seasonal sale which I never would have known about otherwise. I was able to pick up some gear at a good discount, thanks to that ad!

Is that correct?

I thought that Adblock would whitelist certain ads themselves that they deemed non-obtrusive, and allow those to run.

I didn't think they were in the business of selling ad space...

EDIT: Just read up on it, I guess they changed what they are doing. Either way it sounds legit to me. It's not like they are siphoning off all the websites ad revenue, they still give ad revenue to the organization... (assuming their percentages aren't out of wack) this seems like the better alternative that we have had the last 10 years, where they just kill all of a websites ads and kill all that revenue.

Either way I have whitelisted RS, as well as many other websites I like. I just use adblocker cause youtube is a major joke with their ads.

Opera has a built-in ad blocker (RS white listed, naturally). I hate 3rd party software

Greebo i t-boned some guy and killed their baby, it was funny
silvia i have a couple asian guy friends that do very well with the ladies. but guess what, they go to the gym, they dont have long hair, they dont wear orange pants, and they dont play counterstrike. its not the ethnicity that the girls dont like, its the style and personality.
450HP Supra I am about to use your eye sockets as a shoe rack for my nuts. ...something about chinks, j-bodys, I can't quite remember as I was drunk and looking for a girl to punch in the clit. Think of it as a digital urinal, and you are the mint, except, instead of actually smelling mint, you smell like mothballs, rotten kimchee and virginity. I'm about to start drinking heavily now and you better be gone before I get back or I swear to god I will break the internet over my knee and use the pieces to beat you in the deformed skull with, cock muffler.
