Will the MOAB (Mother Of all AdBlockers) finally kill advertising?

Backlash on Facebook

Despite using Adblock I kept getting an advert on Facebook pestering me to give a review of a company I've never had any dealings with. I kept clicking "Hide" to get rid of it but Facebook behaved like assholes and continued pushing the same advert, over and over again, pestering me to review the company. In the end I gave the company a review. One star and an acerbic write up explaining why I'd done it. Now the company are hacked off too and are putting in a claim to facebook as the way facebook are ramming their advertising down people's throats is being counterproductive and giving them negative reviews and ratings. Fancy that. At least the ads have stopped pestering me to review the company.
