If This Site Doesn’t Display
This is what I encountered when I tried to connect to Performance Today site. Initially I thought it’s the cookie problem, but it’s not. It’s because of Adblock Plus Firefox add-on. The interesting thing is that I have no problem to go to MarketPlace site, which is also from Public Radio.
The only ad in MarketPlace is
That isn’t blocked by Adblock Plus. The extra ad in Performance Today, which is blocked by Adblock Plus, is from “Gather” (see blow). When I view Performance Today in Opera, it only skips the upper ad content due to the AdSweep script I installed and I have problem in viewing the site because of that.
Will this trend — disable viewing from ad-blocked browsers — continue in other sites? Possible. I understand the importance of ads to these sites. I don’t mind seeing some ads there, as long as they are not flash-loaded, not too distracting.
