Hey there everyone.

As many of you are probably well aware, some sites use anti-adblock strategies.
My current issues lies with "", which is either a menace to deal with as it uses a ton of unprofessional, obtrusive ads - or, I can't see the videos they provide.
Now, to my suggestion:
I think it would be great to spare a webpage from its usual treatment (ad blocking through predefined host lists) so I've got it in working order, and then to apply manual fixes for each specific add - or at least as far as I can get without being unable to load the videos again.
Currently, Adblock is either "ON + manual additions" or "OFF", both of which are unsuitable at times.

    Hi w.tobias96,

    Thanks for your suggestion! There may be a less circuitous option for you. If you're on a site that's refusing to show content if AdBlock is installed, you can try the instructions in this Knowledge Base article about websites detecting AdBlock. Most people find that just the first suggestion solves the issue for them.

    A quick alternative (if you don't mind seeing ads, of course!) is just to disable AdBlock on that site. Click the AdBlock button and select Don't run on pages on this domain, and then click Exclude.

    As a side note, if you're seeing lots of intrusive ads on a free video site, 99% of the time they're malware. If you must use a site like that, please be sure you have a good anti-malware and antivirus installed and configured to run all the time.

    I'm already running Reek's killer with Tampermonkey and subscribing to the warning list hasn't been successful either.

    This anti-adblock seems to be pretty deeply implemented, that's why I created this thread here.

    Hi w.tobias96,

    Ah! Well, that would have been the easy answer. I passed your suggestion to our developers for consideration. Thanks again!
