tcptomato the maintainer ROad was in turn accused by Zoso and others of blocking websites based on their reporting bias, i.e., "fake news" websites (which tcp checked from a third-party website) and blocking affiliate links. They claimed the list was blocking more than what it was intended for and playing with users choices and bloggers income. Zoso also said that his website was being targeted in particular for ads and also claimed that it was tcptomato who got his list booted from uBO to get his on there. Supporters of ROad said the list is fine and blocks ads better than ROList.
uBO currently uses the "light" version of ROad which does not block fake news websites though it still does block affiliate links. ROList is still the default on ABP https://adblockplus.org/subscriptions
This raises interesting questions such as whether filter lists should block fake new sites and affiliate links. I believe the answer to both questions should be no unless the filter lists are clearly meant for these purposes; an ad filter should simply block ads.
