Ads on mashable.com are getting through. It looks like they are generating dynamic, random tags for the ads. How does this get fixed?

I can't reproduce the issue. No ads for me.

for the social list:

Code: Select all

I am seeing the ads. It appears that it is using random spans to inject the ads. Reproduced on multiple computers.

A lot of mobile sites, like Mashable.com , implements an article-hiding feature, so as to force people to click "continue reading" before it shows the full article.

Another example is those multi-slide articles / Listicles, that force you to click "Right" for every short paragraph.

Can ad-blockers disable such a feature on websites? Would be great if it can work on both Android and Windows 10 Desktop too.

Thank you!

@exterm1nator Are your filter lists up-to-date? Post a screenshot and an example page.

Try Adblock Browser https://adblockbrowser.org/ which has more advanced filtering options then only DNS in Adaway.

is there any 3rd party app instead? reason is because I use Chrome across all my devices, and count on it to sync bookmarks, history etc.
