Eyeo / Acceptable Ads

Hi Team,

as you sold your soul to Eyeo with the new Acceptable Ads program, I deinstalled your extension immediately.
Don't lie about "want to make the internet better" - it's just not true anymore.

I strongly suggest people to go to and support uBlock Origin instead, myself I will do the best I can to spread the word.
Truely disappointed.

    Hi Marco,

    We're sorry we weren't able to announce AdBlock's participation in the Acceptable Ads program in advance, but we think finding a sustainable, non-intrusive way to fund the web is ultimately going to make the web better...and so far, the majority of our users agree. Acceptable Ads defines strict guidelines to identify non-intrusive ads, which AdBlock now shows by default. The Acceptable Ads program was started by Adblock Plus (ABP), but is moving to the control of a third-party review board. We think this is a good thing and we’re behind it all the way. We've also proclaimed our support for the EFF's new Do Not Track privacy standard. With these moves we’re making it easier for you to support your favorite websites, without degrading your web browsing experience or compromising your privacy.

    That said, we understand if you don’t agree with our decision.
    Thanks for your honest feedback. We appreciate having had your support in the past, and we hope that one day we can win you back. :)
