    Just disable adblock for this site specifically. Normally it is as easy as right-clicking the app.

    What is wrong with a few ads on a site you like to visit. You are supporting the site by allowing ads to be shown and it is not too much of a bother.

    The only 'sort of' ad that annoys me is the one that comes up in the middle of the screen sometimes. I would just simply ignore them.

    Block the banner using html. Not paying a penny to this website.

    If you're using AdBlock, then when you get the banner just click the icon and use "Block an add on this page"

      Security, privacy, slowing down the page hugely, data caps, etc.

      Edit: To expand:

      -Security:
      --Ads are managed by third-parties. Not TSR, who merely host them. There are many instances of where major websites accidentally hosted malicious ads.

      -Privacy
      --Some ads track you. But mainly, ad-blocks also block some scripts etc. that mine your data - on this webpage alone I see scripts from krxd.net, google.com, hm732.com, indexww.com, emn0.com, scorecardresearch.com, doubleclick.net, adsensecustomsearchads.com, w55c.net, dynamicyield.com

      I hate ads. That's what's wrong with it. I can't ignore them, they drive me crazy.

      I would happily whitelist TSR if their ads weren't so goddamn intrusive and annoying and didn't make my motherfudging browser crash every single time!

      The only way that it slows down the page hugely is if you have a really bad device, and I mean a really bad device.

      The security and privacy are hardly bad. Just by using the internet these things are worse off even with adblocker.

      Data caps are a good argument, I have read they can use up quite a lot of data.

      Done it! You're a genius - thank you very much, seems to have solved it.

      Sorry TSR, I am not tolerating rubbish like those annoying pop ups.

      The ads are intrusive in the extreme. If you're relying on this level of extreme advertisements then you're business model needs to be reworked.

      I can imagine him making a public profile and just persuading people to not use adblock.
