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.

Do you follow ABP best practices, thus getting this website listed on its whitelist? If not sorry, it doesn't matter how "moderate" that YOU think those ads are, they are still a risk.

If you read the ABP requirements? It is practically a "how to" on showing ads while being malware free, and I'm sorry but my PC and data are too valuable to just take anybody's word for it that their ads are safe, I want some proof they are following best practices and the ABP whitelist provides that.
