*goes on site looking for free anime to stream*

Site: *popup* we noticed you're using an ad blocker! Please turn it off to continue using our site!

Me, an intellectual: *opens chrome developer tools, finds the HTML for the popup, opens its corresponding CSS and adds display: none; continues watching anime blissfully, without popups and ads*

Who said being a developer wasn't a super power?

    Now use something like greasemonkey to do it automaticly for you

    Generally speaking, I do pretty much the same BUT when I find a good website that I like, I would always whitelist it on my adblock.

    While ads are freaking annoying, they are the source of income for such free services

    Use ublock origin. Awesomeness incarnate

    Or use Ghostery Chrome Extension. Not only it blocks ads but trackers too.

    My partner was trying to buy some pharmaceuticals the other night, from the advice of a qualified consultant, and the site had a block to say that she needed to be registered with a user who registered for pharmaceutical care.

    I looked at the product page to add the cart with the message showing and was like.. /wtf/.. she handed me the laptop and I just inspected the Dom and simply removed the div with the overlay class and she was able to add it to cart and pay through the checkout.

    Rediculous!

    Nice tip, didn't tough about that...
    Must check it out...
    And btw one or a few adds its OK
    But:
    Porn ads
    Ads that try to install malware
    Ads that close the current page...
    Those kind of ads are abusive and should be considered malware...

    @jesse-bryant wow! That's ridiculous some of these sites really aren't secure - relying on client-side validation or blocks alone really isn't enough.

    I once found a site that added a popup as a random HTML tag with a random class in a random position somewhere in another HTML element so that it would require a bit more to spot and block it 🤔
