    Has anyone here ever deployed AdBlock Blockers like the one here blockadblock.com/blockadblock_basic_script.php

    Is there any downsides to this? I am making good money off Google Adsense and don't want to rock the boat with some random script, but I do wonder how much more I could be making.

    So no negative side effects from this?

    You might annoy users and potential clients. I for one despise pop-unders and sites that force you to look at ads.

    Popunders and making your AdSense banners visible are two very different things. The sites is usually designed with having a few ad blocks in mind, so making them visible is rarely detrimental to the user experience.

    So in my opinion it's a good idea, but only if you are certain that the script you're using doesn't violate the AdSense TOS somehow.

    True. Violating the ToS is instant death and loss of months of hard work. I think I'd rather play it safe.

    If some site has content that your really want to see, and they use adblocker blockers, then turn off javascript. 90 percent of the time you can view the content. Block that!
