Revealed: The naughty tricks used by web ads to bypass blockers

On the other hand...

One of the online newspapers I regularly read, recently introduced an ad-blocker-blocker. If they detected an ad-blocker, they put up their screen advising how to disable the adblocker, then refresh the screen. Unfortunately, they have implemented it in such a poor way, that even when I disable my ad-blocker, they still won't let me view their content as they think the blocker is still active. Fine, I won't read your website, and you won't get my clicks, despite me being willing to give you a chance. Brisbanetimes.com.au I'm looking at you.
