What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

As many have probably realized, Adblock Plus is now by-default allowing certain acceptable ads. In my opinion the Stack Exchange network has unobtrusive ads especially once you cross the "reduced advertising" threshold.

Has the team considered contacting the authors of Adblock Plus and requesting being on their acceptable-ad list?

I manually added Stack Exchange to my whitelist :-) –  Rocket Hazmat Dec 16 '11 at 15:17
@Rocket: Same here. –  Madara Uchiha Dec 16 '11 at 16:11
I typically don't click on ads anyway out of principle. It's kind of like buying from the door-to-door salesman. Though perhaps we could arrange a day where the people of meta.stackoverflow.com made demands such as the abdication of all double-diamond mods. If the demands were met we could throw a "click-on-ads party". –  Evan Carroll Dec 16 '11 at 16:12
@EvanCarroll: I don't agree with that analogy. The door-to-door salesman isn't otherwise providing a service, this website is. Not that I feel any compulsion to click on ads solely because of that, but I've certainly encountered ads on StackOverflow which I've followed. –  David Dec 16 '11 at 18:40
Oh Evan, controversial as ever lol –  Earlz Dec 16 '11 at 19:08
Yea -- you know me though. I shine the good light of information, accountability, and transparency. Unfortunately for Jeff he can't dispatch his armies to downvote me in comments. At least, not until they're finished building the site and they add that functionality. –  Evan Carroll Dec 16 '11 at 19:33
