A lot of sites now won't let you in if you run an adblocker. Don't know how it works, but it does. Try www.autocar.co.uk for example with your adblocker running and see the result.

I do run an adblocker most of the time but for some sites I disable it. For many sites that I might just stumble on whilst having a bimble around the place, I just close the page and bimble on.


Blocking ads relies on URLs in one way or another. Ad blocking plugins/add-ons “see” the URL to be fetched and match that against a white/blacklist of URLs. The URLs typically either contain the business logic, written in JavaScript, on where to fetch the ad from or the ads themselves. Usually the former.

One way that sites detect whether the user is using an ad blockers is that, when the page is completely loaded and has been rendered, there should be functions (methods) or variables present that come from those external URLs. If those are not present it means something has prevented their loading. There are other ways of doing this but the above is pretty straightforward.

Btw, the site you mentioned works fine on iPad with 1Blocker X enabled and doesn’t not show ads. Mr. Green

By default i note all the companies who run adds to note not to use them Thumbs Up its just my own personal screwed up approach at karma Laughing ...I find the adds awful, if they are relevant - its offensive they are tracking, if they dont they are pointless and offensive. I know there are click tracking on links too - which is a little annoying

Where the adds are is important

The site also seems to log me out regularly, without me doing anything. Confused

Plus it tends to freeze after submitting.
