Re: On the other hand...

"Allows me to select an element on a page and then block it. That removes the page overlays that are shown when you are using an ad blocker. Takes some experimentation to find the right elements."

Based on what I've seen, they're getting savvy to that. The "You Cheat!" part is now the BASE of the page and uses local JavaScript to SHOW the actual article, which defaults to hidden on the style sheet. Deny-by-default, IOW. And BTW, I'm also having more and more trouble getting pages to show acceptably in Lynx.
