I am starting to see the video ads on youtube in most of the videos I watch. I can see a handful of ads on gamefaqs and just saw that the evil within us 2 ad in the background. Soon, we will lose and we will all be watching ads all the time, everywhere.

I'm currently viewing this all on chrome with UBO & tampermonkey.

South Park was right!

There's your problem.

chrome... owned by google... youtube, owned by google, so you think it's coincidence? IS IT REALLY?!

Seriously though, I don't see any ads with the ad nauseum plugin... or maybe it's umatrix that stops it. Either way, worst I get is a minor pause on some videos as it tries to make an ad load and then after nothing happens it starts up. OR I can usually refresh and it starts up.

Oh and Google doesn't like the plugin so they ban it. If you have to run it on chrome you have to load it as a developer plugin and deal with the annoying "you really shouldn't be running developer plugins" popup when you start up chrome.

Reread original post though, it seems to be blocking too much or not enough.

Maybe your adblocker isn't working? Switch?

The future is in Native ads, though. Can't really adblock those.

Ublock origin and ghostery cleans up most everything.
I am not economically viable.

Hmm, that is worth a try. Just uninstalled UBO and replaced with ABP. Apparently you can click a button to stop it from allowing some ads. Seems to be working better on previously messed up sites (like yahoo).

No you don't understand... the ads evolved. The have become sentient and have taken over his computer. It doesn't matter what he does, it'll always find a way around it. It's only a matter of time now until Cyberdyne AI takes over and initiates WWIII in an attempt to keep TC from using adblock.

It can't be bargained with, It can't be reasoned with, the ads don't feel pity or remorse...They can't be stopped, they won't be stopped.
