    today i've been blocking some anoying banner ads. Now, it's not that they are gone, but new ones apears, new ones that i never saw before.

    Just thought i'd point that out, it's maybe just on my end though.

    I know, upsetting isn't it. Well at least he's seeing some of the ads.
    I however adblock any banner ads, regardless of where they are.

    We're not going to help you circumvent the extremely minimal ads we put up on the site to support it. Ad revenue is just about the only viable source of revenue BU actually has. Furthermore, I would hardly call our banners anywhere near "annoying". The only non-gaming related ones we have are google adSense which are probably the most invisible out there.

    Don't worry, i think i did said that it don't work anyway? They always come back after i try to remove them.
    Keep at it, all im saying is that there's some Ads that i can't see but they are active.

    Though I'm a pro addblock user :D I never block any BU adds. Specially as they are never intrusive and the majority link to free stuff I don't imagine BU get's cash for. And the ones they do get cash for... hey, the site's totally for free, let's help them keep it that way.

    I don't block ads from any site specifically, however the hosts list I use tends to end up blocking ads on most sites, including many on this site. In order to restore this site's ads it's probably gonna result in unblocking ads on more sites as well...

    I figure, I'd rather just donate to BU directly as my form of support.

    I added BU to Adblock's exceptions because of this thread, so the bump was worthwhile!
