Online Creator support

While I love AdBlock soooo much and rightfully so, there's one problem with it I have. I know that it is possible and very easy to allow ads on certain websites, I feel like a lot of people don't know that. The point I'm getting to is that AdBlock by default blocks ads on sites that creators rely on ads to make a living on and it takes that away from them, such as YouTube. I know as a starting YouTuber trying to make something out of it that this poses as a problem and this goes for all starting creators of all sizes. Although my subscribers are mostly friends right now, almost all of them don't get ads on my videos which means, as my or any other creators sub count grows, they will struggle to make revenue to improve their channel. All I may suggest is that when people install adBlock is that they get a prompt asking them if they wish to allow ads on sites such as YouTube, just a simple yes or no. Clicking yes would allow ads on YouTube, etc and still block everything else, no would just act as AdBlock defaulty does and they would still be able to change it later
