    So, earlier today @[m]Costello[/m] announced that he was declaring war on Adblock. As a result, we now have annoying banners re-enabled on all GBAtemp Network pages.
    In response to this, I am pleased to present:

    This thread reminded me to disable Ad Block Plus on GBAtemp, since I happen to like this site and would prefer it if Costello had the money to continue to host it.

    Blocking the image banners is taken care of using a single rule. There are several other rules included.
    Adblock Plus is ineffective as of earlier today anyway. This is entirely about user-choice, remember when the ads were optional?

    Wait, ads are supposed to be appearing even with adblock now? That's odd, all I'm seeing are the standard etcome banners, which are pretty non-intrusive anyways.

    Vaguely. I enjoy having niceties like IPB 3, flashcart giveaways and Tempmas, so I've no objections to advertisements.

    Events have been paid for by affiliates, who are unobtrusively and fairly mentioned within their respective news-posts. While it is nice that you have no objections to advertisements, any stance against user freedom (regardless of intent) should be opposed.

    On the plus side, Etcome's adverts here don't track browsing history like many advertising networks, so there's no concern for user privacy. I'm only doing this because verbal opposition hasn't resulted in much.

    I think you left the "Allow Non-Intrusive Advertising" option enabled.

    Fixed subscription to work properly. Would it be too obnoxious for me to add DS-Scene's ads to the list?
