Let's talk ad-blocking.

With the arrival of iOS 9, ad-blocking is coming to mobile in a big way, and it's causing a lot of talk all over the web. It is highlighting the internal struggle some feel about the practice, but also the hypocrisy of some of its staunchest proponents. So far, it seems like the real 'bloodbath' isn't taking place where people thought it would be - namely, publishers - but among personalities.

I was wondering the same but I think probably ad companies are afraid of giving up control where the ads are hosted.

And of course you can still blocks those Ajax request, the problem is that all elements from a HTTP request follow a pattern and all adblockers do is remove the pattern. this can still be done even if the content comes from the same server
