Option to enable adds for certain content

Hi Michael,

Love your service and browsing through my emails I've found that I awarded you once with a couple of cups of coffee for this. Adblock really keeps all the advertisements aways nicely. However, I've come to the realisation that some of the content creators I really like, are dependent on the displayment of adds. These creators I would really like to support and I would not mind watching the adds that are displayed on their pages or video's.

The thing is this:
* There are video's that I browse adhoc and I love the fact that your plugin keeps me from watching annoying adds.
* There are also Youtube'rs whoms content I really like. I also think think that therefore they deserver some Youtube income of me watching the adds on their video''s.
* Nothing is for free in this world. People/websites who/which I really like, I would like to support watching their adds.

My suggestion: can you make it so that:
* I can select Youtube channels on which adds aren't blocked.
* I can select websites on which adds aren't blocked.

Since nothing is for free, I would donate again with some cups of coffee if you would implement this feature. ;-)

Greets,
Rogier

    I agree with this suggestion, it would be great to have more flexibility so I can support the people I believe deserve my money, on Youtube.

    This feature would be awesome. Whilst most ads on youtube are crap, the option to enable ads for certain channels to help support them would be great.

    • Unfortunately, that first one is a complicated one, as Google do not make YouTube URLs in a way that makes it easy to unblock the ads on only some channels. For now, you can only do all ads on a site, or none at all.
    • You can already do this in 2 clicks. Just click the AdBlock button, then choose "Don't run on pages on this domain".

    Hope this helps!
