God Bless You Michael !
I installed AdBlock just 6 months ago (August) and so far, closed to 2 millions ads were blocked. This is an awesome shield against evil. Thank you soooo much Michael & Company for your contribution in cleaning this planet from garbage. I commit myself to send you a yearly payment on September first for the rest of my life…

I started a discussion on WordReference about AdBlock:

I asked our developer to look into this. It looks as if the general consensus is correct. The site is using that "error" to try to get users to disable their ad blockers. Neither AdBlock nor Adblock Plus (ABP) does what the site administrator claimed. If there IS a conflict, it's not something our developer was able to discover, which suggests it's buried very deep indeed.
He found a way around this, however. Just add the following filter to AdBlock's custom filters (found on the CUSTOMIZE tab in AdBlock's options):
This is likely only a temporary solution, until the site finds another way around ad blocking. You can also try the suggestions in our Knowledge Base article, A website is telling me to disable AdBlock before it will show content.
Feel free to post this in the WordReference.com forum. :)

Sorry, I gave you the wrong filter! Please use this one instead:
(that is, omit the ` at the start).
