Anyone wants to take a wild guess how long before they block AdBlock (Plus), uBlock and the rest?

They also try to detect easylist filters via this bait script - https://www.palemoon.org/ads.js?id=somead That's just so pathetic and cringeworthy :roll:

@Lanik I thought they blocked all adblock extensions. They have blocked AdNauseam which I personally find to be harmful. I get the blocking of ads (hey that's why I am here) but blocking them and on top of that sending fake clicks, this is just wrong. With adblock you just block ads no data sent but sending fake data to propagate your agenda and disrupting other services like that is not nice.

That being said I am not sure how much an open source browser should have a say in this.

Not that I know off. It works too some extent but not flat out blocked.
