Forbes now denies access to its website if it detects an adblocker:

I cant view forbes.com with my ad blocker enabled. Had to disable it to view the site- couldn't find another way to bypass it.

Hi, Rhana from AdBlock by getadblock.com here. I'm getting inconsistent results when I try this. In both Chrome and Chrome Canary, both normal and incognito windows, this is what I see:

The first time I to to forbes.com, I get the "disable your ad blocker" warning. Clicking "Continue to site" thereafter triggers the second version of the warning. I enter the above rules in AdBlock, clear all forbes.com cookies, and go to forbes.com again. The quote on the left side of the welcome page loads, but there's nothing on the right side where the warning should appear. I remove the rules from AdBlock, clear forbes.com cookies, and Forbes happily lets me enter the site. Thereafter, nothing I do makes that warning appear again, not clearing forbes.com cookies and restarting the browser, not clearing forbes.com cookies and trying again in an incognito window, nothing. Every time, I see the "Continue to site" 3-2-1 countdown and then the home page opens without complaint.

What am I missing here?

Ah! I just read an article on Forbes.com that seems to explain the inconsistency (http://www.forbes.com/sites/lewisdvorki ... ure-holds/). Forbes is running AB tests. Only a small percentage of users are seeing the request to disable ad blockers in exchange for an "ad-light" experience. There have also been some glitches in execution.

I'll pass those filters on to our users in any case. Thanks!

The filters bypassed the anti-adblock message but now it doesn't block the ads, and acceptable ads are disabled.

If you add the above ABP list the issue should be fixed (is for me)

If that doesn't work try adding

I do get ads on my mobile ios, i have easylist enabled. Anyone with an ios device can confirm? I'm using adguard for ios. It's free. It's blocking all ads, only forbes :/
