    The makers of puny adblocking plugin Adblock Plus are being paid off to allow adverts through the filter.

    "we are being paid by some larger properties that serve nonintrusive advertisements that want to participate in the Acceptable Ads initiative."

    "Managing this list requires significant effort on our side and this task cannot be completely taken over by volunteers," the FAQ says. "That's why we are being paid by some larger properties that serve nonintrusive advertisements."

    Secure Gateways FTW; No software to install, They work with any device with a browser, They allow you to centralize your blocklists in one place and when your away you can VPN home for secure filtered internet.
