Guess I'm a pirate

So after they announced that the majority of us who use ad blocking addons are pirates, it seems they have taken the next step forward. I don't know if this is specific to myself, but I cannot access anything on the site now with my addon up. But if I disable said addon, the content is back. Guess they would rather block us if we don't whitelist their ads. So I guess I was stealing all the content the site provided. This is a sad day. I really do love this site and would donate for no ads, but its just a shame the site would go this route.

    Hi Zet,

    I just tested this myself in Chrome and Firefox, but don't have any issue when I turn on an ad blocker add-on.  What blocker are you using?

    There was an article that I was showing some friends and gave them the link. No content displayed until they turned off their ad blocker. Personally never had a problem with this, but I don't use any ad blockers either.

    I think the only "bad" ads I've seen are the flashy ads (the ones that blink and flash while you are trying to read...ugg)  and I haven't seen any of them in a while.
