    Off-Topic: I wanted to post this immage only buut "The message you have entered is too short. Please lengthen your message to at least 15 characters.", It looks like the script does not know that an immage makes as much as 1000 words :))

    can't it be that you allow non-intrusive ads to be shown? it also can be that your filters are outdated or you're subscribed to the wrong 3rd-party filters, regardless all this, it happens sometimes that 1 or 2 ad slips through adblock plus

    i don't see any ads on imgur or anywhere else for that matter, but i don't use adblock plus anymore, i switched to ublock origin

    Oh, I get it.
    I just wanted to share this with you guys because I thought there is a way to bypass it and we don't know it yet.

    there's a way, because even on BHW a few banner ads get through on adblock plus from time to time

    honestly i'm not sure why only a few webmasters use these tricks to circumvent adblock plus

    Aren't we in IM. Shouldn't we be the one who should be discouraging adblock and those kind of plugins and scripts.

    For me, it is like Facebook saying 'Social Media is a waste of time'

    I think that people who use AdBlock are determined to not click ads, so, escaping adblock would not increase profit a lot. But I wonder why Google does not do anything to prevent this... I mean their profit is made with ads, and AdBlockers are targetted to block ads.

    If 100% of users would use adblock, that wold mean no more profit for website developers, so no more new and good content to attract visitors, etc... and no more profit for Google... imo, every adblock users is a snowflake, and as the number increases, there will be an avalanche killing the internet :)

    This may sound ridiculous, but I have a pretty big immagination :))

    Type of users who use Adblock typically click on NO ads whatsoever, so losses are not so bad as they look. I see lots of niches where the vast majority of the users have Adblock (tech- or gaming-related often), people are competing way too hard for scraps in these areas.

    yes, this always comes up here and i see where you're coming from, but what others said, those people who use adblockers are less likely to click on your ads even when they aren't using adblockers, so it's practically a loss of revenue which you never were intended to have in the first place

    instead of being against adblock and constantly whining because of it, what we should really do is suggest webmasters to use less intrusive ads, flash ads and 10 popups, so there will be no need for adblockers, but i guess it's already a losing game, because people who use adblockers will never cease to use them

    an adblocker is the first thing i install on a browser when i do a re-install (especially on my mother's machine, who's a little bit clueless about the dangers of clicking on places where she shouldn't), an adblocker is a lot more nowadays than just an adblocker, it's organic part of the antivirus system, because a lot of these ads are infested with adware/malware/tracking cookies and i prefer to keep those out, plus these annoying flash ads which have sound too are not the easiest on your resources either, i prefer them to be blocked too

    it was those webmasters who fucked it up who use these annoying ads and they fucked it up for everyone, for those too who only use a lot less intrusive Adsense ads

    but you can circumvent adblock plus in some cases, if you try those tricks, which you can find in those 2 threads i posted above

    btw i just read an article about an adblocker-blocker blocker :), it works on all major browsers:
    http://thenextweb.com/apps/2016/02/11/around-and-around-we-go/
    https://github.com/reek/anti-adblock-killer

    these adblocker-blocker blockers are also just an answer to an issue which came to life when adblocker-blocker scripts/plugins were born, closing out all users from your site who uses an adblocker isn't the best approach, ask them (nicely) to disable their adblockers, yes, it's a lot more likeable and they may click on a few of your ads, but if you close out everyone - unless you're wikipedia or some authority site -, adblock users will just close the site and never come back, because they can find your content elsewhere
