    Asking not to get blocked?

    You better believe that's a blocking.

    As a paying customer, I don't want to see ads.

    If the situation were to get critical on GBAtemp we'd have to resort to doing this.
    But it's not the case right now, we have enough to cover server costs and finance competitions every month :)

    Even then, we wouldn't completely prevent people from accessing the site when Adblock is enabled. We'd probably have one single alert message like this, to keep users aware of the situation, I suppose...

    I've been using adblock+ on gbatemp since I joined, and it was on even during the period where GBAtemp was piss poor and even I could have bought the website.

    Abusive in the sense of abusing the trust of the visitor.
    Multiple popups, pop unders, windows that try to prevent you closing them, ads hosted by networks that are known to have served malware etc.

    Unfunny post. 1/50, took me too long for me to get the joke. However, your activeness makes me very happy as there is another forum I visit that their moderators are very inactive. So 3/5.
