My workaround is pretty simple - if site has pop-up ads, i don't use it. Ever. Here on TP my AdBlock is disabled because ads are not annoying me.

I take the same approach, if they try to get heavy handed and refuse to allow people with ad blockers, then I avoid them.

The solution is simple, use an adblocker to block their popup.

When I was greeted by the fullscreen splash, I right clicked and blocked the element of the welcome screen as well as the big blue overlay. I can now visit their site without getting harassed by their crappy popup OR by ads.

Yeah I went into the blockable elements of the overlay, but for me it's more of a principal thing, if they're going to ad rape, i wont visit Theyre site .... @RCoon is right it CAN be blocked , but for me it's easier just to get that info from somewhere else

I recommend tech power up, if you haven't tried it you should it's great ;)

I would like to add, I do add sites to my whitelist including TPU and RPS, since I visit them daily. If I ever come up against a particularly intrusive ad on a page on my whitelist, I simply add that specific add to my blocked elements list so it doesn't show its teeth again.

Just tried it in Chrome with adblockplus, I could hide these elements, worked like a charm! :D:p

This.

Ever since using Ublock all my adblocker issues have gone away.

Also when adblockers start whitelisting their own sites, stop using those adblockers - they are using the exact same mechanism against you, its a self-destructive practice for an adblocker. The power should be in the hands of the user. If websites want to block my access for using an adblocker, their loss not mine. It's really very simple.

Websites that cry havoc because they see their 'source of income' destroyed because they can't show intrusive, or sometimes even malware-ridden ads, have NO RIGHT TO EXIST. If all you make money with is showing ads, apparently your content isn't valuable enough and I'm glad to see it go (Twitter, I'm looking at you too! :D) . The internet's big enough to find alternatives. It's not the user that needs to rethink its stance, its the ad servers that need to start considering their business ethics. If you're happy to serve malware to your visitors, or if you're happy to allow it to happen to your website, you just don't deserve traffic. Die, and fast please. I think many people have forgotten that the actual content on the internet is not the merit of companies who make money, its the merit of the userbase itself. The most interesting initiatives and websites on the internet, are free initiatives by likeminded individuals. That won't ever die, and with that, the internet won't ever die. The only motivation that's required is a sense of freedom - money is irrelevant.

Tweaktown = blacklisted here now.

If you refresh your page the popup will come back because it uses random names so even if you block "cdepnewt" the next time you refresh the same function could be named "twenpedc".

Looking at their code, what you actually need to block is "tweaktown.com##script:contains( )", you can add it to your filters manually. It should work whatever the name of the function is.

I've stopped visiting the inquirer for the same reason - they let you read a couple of paragraphs and then hide the rest until the block is removed. Not looked at TT lately, but it looks like I won't bother if I can't get round it. @RCoon I'll try your solution first.

When I first started using ad blockers, there weren't that many people using them, so it didn't affect sites' bottom lines at that time and they worked fine on almost all sites. However, I suspected that this would happen when ad blockers became popular and I suspect that virtually all websites are gonna block ad blockers eventually. What do we do then?

FWIW, Tweaktown is a pile of shit. I went off it when it's articles started sounding like an AMD PR-athon. They have history with NVidia and they've never gotten over it. Same reason I avoid some Nvidia butt kissing sites.

By the sound of it Google is a malware company.

BTW, Arstechnica has a sound concept on this.
