Yet another ad-blocker blocker. But stating "We don't mind you running adblocker, but could you please […] disable these scripts […]."

Obviously you mind that I'm running an adblocker. At least be honest with it!

Is there a ublock origin list that filters all those pages from search results? I'm tired of it.

Actions followed words!

I started a little blocklist repository for the Shivering-Isles:

git.shivering-isles.com/shiver

It'll slowly improve and block websites that employ anti-adblock scripts as well as filtering their results from DDG (other search engines possible in the future).

Feel free to send suggestions. (Here or as described by the contribution button.)

Special thanks to @lanodan, @aral and @nikolal who inspired me to put it together.

You can tweak nano defender with ublock origin to bypass this prompts. Check out this guide and test it with site you visited.

@nikolal Thanks for the tip! Doesn't look that bad.

But honestly speaking, I don't want to get around those adblocker blockers, I want stop visiting websites that employ those. Why participate in this cat & mouse game? I just want to take them out of the game. If they don't want me on their website, I don't want them in my search results. Easy as that.

@sheogorath I want the same. This way is some sort of "pirating" their website content without need to disable adblocker. I see this as loss for those websites, just scrap for info you need without giving them profit.

@sheogorath Maybe start by putting their domain into a list so that at least the page won't load further?

@sheogorath Generally, the uBO community's approach is to write entries that remove such website notices, so that visitors won't even know that the website has such statements in the first place.

If you're already using uBO but still see such notices on a few sites, turn on the 'AdGuard Base' list in uBO's settings. If that doesn't remove all of them either, report the remaining ones to uAssets on GitHub.

@dandelionsprout See, that's where I disagree with the uBO community approach. When I visit a website and they have ads, totally fine. I block them, all good. When they block my adblocker, there is a cat and mouse gaming starting. I block their blocker, then they block my blocker blocker, then then I block their blocker blocker blocker, etc.

The straight forward solution is: I take them out of the game. Out of the web. They simply no longer exist. Problem solved permanently.
