They probably get paid pretty well for those ads. I'm not saying that BF is going under, but those are the sort of ads sites allow when they are desperate for money. I don't think one person applying AdBlock Plus will change their mind.
I use NoScript, which allows you to choose which advertising domains you want to allow. I don't see any pop-ups.
Doubleclick.net is pretty standard, so I allow it every time I come on this site, but I don't allow the other advertising domains because I'm not familiar with them. However, I should note that I block doubleclick.net sometimes, because I will occasionally see a broken page, where the first post has no content except several ads that are followed by a really long long long
blank space. Blocking doubleclick.net fixes this problem.
I'm looking into the other advertising domains now.
Ignore that "When google visited this site" Google safe browing diagnostic crap. Not even doubleclick.net or googlesyndication.com live up to that standard, and they're Google syndicates. IMO, viglink.com is fine.
definitely not allowed.
I'll have to look into this one. The ratings can be misleading. It's better to read the comments. NOTE: Siteadvisor doesn't work anymore.
Hmmm, it tracks me, but so does doubleclick and googlesyndication... I'll think about it.
