Adblock not blocking ADs.

This sounds ridiculous, but I downloaded Adblock, to not have ads play while I'm on the computer. This upsets me, because now when I try to go on the computer, every time I go through multiple pages at a time, I get an advertisement of you preaching your little "Mission". This is a joke. People already spread the word to their friends, adblock is already growing. Stop FORCING us, to watch your ads. Once we've seen them 20+ times, in a more consistent matter than before, I'm done. I'm telling ALL of my friends to UNINSTALL Adblock, and to never even think about installing it.

    1. What filter lists are enabled at AdBlock Button > Options > Filter Lists?
    2. Does updating your filters using the update now button at the Filter Lists page in 1. fix this?
    3. What is in the big textbox at AdBlock Button > Options > Customise?
    4. What browser are you using?
    5. Uncheck all filter lists and restart your browser. Does the problem disappear?
      • If unchecking all filter lists fixes the problem, which one filter list must you check to cause the problem again after another restart?
    6. What version of AdBlock is installed? (Found in top-right of AdBlock Button > Options)
