Fisher Investments ( Give us all your money spam )

Seems to be a common stalking advert to us Brits.

I use uBlock origin and I have toggled almost all the filters on its option page. I don't recall when it was the last time I saw an ad on the Web.

I was running uBlock origin for ages but got tired of the "please turn off your Add blocker message " , i also got the same with DNS host blocking.

Yes it's tiring a bit when it happens, but I rather have the blocker running and disable it as per site when I have to, than be without it. That would be just unbearable.

It's pretty amazing when you visit a page and uBlock origin reports that it has blocked over a 100 links. :)

By the way, did you ever toggle "Adblock Warning Removal List" in uBlock's 3rd-party
filters. If I am not mistaken, that one makes some of those "Disable ..." messages to disappear. I haven't seen many of them lately.

It's been awhile since i used it but unless it has changed you had to also install another 3rd party software to run the script that hides that you are using ad-block and i didn't fancy installing it as i had never heard of it.
