"We can literally reshape the Internet." By making the ad companies start an all out war and cripple the internet as we know it? Do you not realize how most web companies are funded?

    My concern is similar. I believe AdBlock still exist is due to the fact that few users are using it. Ad revenues are in the billions, and that is now major companies support themselves. Removing their source of income could drive them to drastic measures. I believe sir Michael Gundlach does not need to be tutored on this subject. As a citizen of the internet, I am concerned of my own security by being a user of AdBlock. This is due to your Idea of a campaign of spreading the knowledge of AdBlock. We would really like some answers, since you have put us (the ones who control what we are seeing on the web) in the spotlight for larger corporations to see. What are you (Mr. Michael Gundlach) trying to accomplish? What should we do when ad-blocking becomes illegal?(worst case scenario)

    Hi guys,

    First, installing AdBlock is on user's choice. We are just developing this extension but user has always the choice, if he will block ads on all sites or not.
    We implemented this feature called "Don't run on this page" and "Don't run on pages on this domain" for this situation.

    We are looking for option, how both sides can benefit from this.

    Best regards,
    Tomáš Taro
