Yeah, on this site they're okay, but either way they shouldn't just restrict people or get angry over them at blocking them, but the point is if you have adblock on and click onto other sites from here they can be easily blocked too. The problem is there are people out there ( mainly people who rely entirely on ad income because they're useless ) that absolutely hate adblock and even rig their sites to complain whenever you have it turned on, of course I don't visit those sites at all.

I think the problem stems from these pay per click/ pay per impression payment systems, ad people get far too obsessed over silly statistics like that, this is why I like the idea of anonymous ads and sites like it, since the publishers have to pay you first before they can put up the ads.

Let's see 'em block this. There's now a random number of invisible "posts" before and after the ad, and they're all (I think) indistinguishable from real posts if you're limited to just CSS selectors. Hopefully the filter maintainers aren't careless or they'll end up blocking random posts.
why are you so dedicated to preserving ads?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I am pretty much done here until they are blocked again. I refuse to use bitcointalk any longer.

Good job theymos. Looks like you will no longer be free to send me shit cause I will no longer request your pages that send scammer ads.

Ads being unblocked shouldn't be such a big deal.

Possible, but do they really bother you that much? I read the forum more than most, and I hardly notice the ads. I'm afraid that if I give people the option, many people will hide ads even when they don't really care whether they see ads or not, just because they can.

I'll add an option next week allowing hero members, Donators, and VIPs to disable advertisements.

That's generous, I hope Hero Members aren't responsible for too large a share of the page views.

Thank you. While the ads really aren't anywhere near as annoying as conventional ones, it just gets kind of old to me seeing the same things again and again. Who knows, maybe I will actually want to bring them back because I want to see what's going on in Bitcoin world. Cheesy

Hero members?.. That's going to be a large chunk. Maybe make it people with 2,000+ posts? It's just hero member is basically what Full Member was a few months ago.

You can already block ads by switching to a different theme.. Anyone can do it (but they do miss some other features too).

More ad variety would be cool through.

yeah, really messed up everything here, topics were shown empty!

open your filters and delete this one:
Code:
bitcointalk.org##tr[class^="td_headerandpost"] > td[style="padding: 1px 1px 0pt;"]:first-child:last-child

I lost my temper on this big time, theymos. Which I would like to apologize to you for this immature response I made. And hope to see that you forgive me. I will leave that at that, and hope this can be water under the bridge.

That's a good idea, and I don't want you pressured into this over my comment. Like I said, I hope you can forgive me for my comment. And only thing I may suggest is atleast try the non-intrusive way as well.

I like the ads, actually I would like to see more, it's not possible to follow up on every new Bitcoin business, so the ads are a way for me to know what's going on in the economy.

anyone has been able to disable the ads since day one by changing the forum theme to "SMF Default Theme - Core" granted we don't see self moderated post headders either(is that new?)

Yeah, the ads are interesting and unobtrusive. I may be wrong but I think they are blocked again. They are when I re-enable Ad Block on this site anyway.

Some of the ads are getting blocked by ABP's EasyList. Currently, it affects only the ads with a background.
