    Sometimes I do deactivate it, get bitch slapped by all the ads and activate it again

    Leaving is the best tactic but in case you can't, I'll leave this here:

    I go one step further, and add the site to my ad blocker rules.

    @Letmecode most people do not think so. They cannot understand the effort behind this work, believing that everything on the web is owed free.

    I usually, if I really want to see the content, spend more time removing the message with dev tools than what it would have taking me to just disable ublock

    Just install an ad-blocker-blocker-blocker.

    What about that "Anti Anti-AdBlock"? It works most kf the times, so...

    "Please disable AdBlock to view the content."

    ME: Say no more. *Right Click -> Inspect Element*

    @loserboi That's no longer effective, unfortunately. The site detects the deleted ads, and reinstates them.

    Don't these jerks realize we're not interested?!

    1. Fuck Forbes
    2. uBlock origin for life!

    You know, earlier today I had that exact same thought.. Almost posted that same thought here too. O.o

    (Edit)

    @loserboi, there was one site I tried that with today, except the sneaky fuckers actually replaced the contents of `<body>` with their "disable your blocker" message. Can't remember the site now though..

    This is the time when I use dev tools, when I am not working, I mean.

    I find it pretty funny when I see this on sites where the content is written on countless other sites as well. Don't assume yourself to be some incredibly unique service when you're just a glorified blog. It's so easy to just leave and look at another site. I've found no instance yet where I've actually needed to disable it, it's like they don't understand the internet.

    Or you could just put cache: in front of the url (eg. cache:https://whatever.com) and get google's cached copy.

    - "please disable your adblocker"

    - Presses F12, hits development tools in whatever browser I'm using.

    - Deletes a couple offending divs and changes the CSS for the article to not be display:none.

    - Enjoys.

    I add the notification to my adblocker's blacklist. Ironic really

    True but there are some options except leaving

    This method seems to work for me for Forbes specifically on Windows (Mac people, do Cmd+R I guess, and maybe it'll work):
    As soon as the pop-up appears, press ESC, and then F5 (reload window) immediately. Do this enough times, and eventually, the page will load with either no ads or else blanked out ads ;-) (And with your adblockers intact!)

    so interesting

    @nikolatesla That would work if they simply put the 'please disable adblock' notice on a top most div, covering all web contents which are still there. But it won't work if they simply won't load content yet.

    I'm curious: would it make any difference to you if the popup on the site could have button that would disable the adblock for just that site, instantly with 1 click?

    For me I think it would. 50% of the time I leave on principle. But 50% of the time I would consider disabling my AdBlocker but I cannot be bothered to actually manually open the AdBlock menu and do it.

    If there in theory was an AdBlock API that sites could call to ask if you wanted to disable it - I would probably use it once in a while.

    "Hello Website visitor,

    As you may already know, we generate all of our revenue though ads. And, yes, we bombard you with them because each one only pays us a fraction of a cent if you don't click on it and even if we ask you to disable your ad-blocker, and you do, we aren't going to ask you to click on the ads so we can make a few cents more.

    Isn't our great content worth that, though?

    I mean, wouldn't the world be great if your DVR didn't let you fast forward through commercials or highway billboards (remember DRIVING?) jumped in front of your car, blocking your view for 2-3 seconds so you HAD to read them?

    Ok, so that last one wouldn't be so great... we got ahead of ourselves.

    But as most of the Internet is free as in speech but not free as in beer, we need to pay for this content you are looking at so would it kill you to leave the fucking ads alone and let us be able to afford hot dogs instead of just ramen?

    Fuck you very much."
