See the article below. Will ad-block be able to filter this out as well? If not, can it be adjusted to do so?

    Hi witalis,

    We're remarkably good at countering new forms of anti-adblocking. On a case-by-case basis, the advertiser wins. Which is to say, on a case-by-case basis, the individual content creator who controls the source of their site or app down to the metal can always outsmart us, and get the sponsored content displayed in some way. But the reality, the practical fact is that we’re always going to be better at it, because it’s the standard that wins the day. We can’t compete against the individual, but we can always compete against the standard.

    There’s always going to be a top 10 ways of anti-adblocking a site, and we can always deal with that. They are doomed to always be affected by ad blocking: as soon as they come up with a new anti-adblocking solution, we're going to be aware of it, because we're going to get a whole bunch of support tickets.

    So, we're not worried by this. :)
