Ad blockers get ad-group exec's blood boiling

TL;DR - They want to start blocking view of web content if you're using an ad blocker.

Can Ad Muncher circumvent this?

I bypass ad block detection all the time.

if you find a site doing that, report it to me.
That's not an ad blocker... THIS is an ad blocker.

My second popup stopper didn't block enough.

So it's not as easy as just coding AM to be stealth to all websites?

Are there various methods of detecting an ad blocker?

they detect when the ad is not there...

they are not detecting Ad Muncher directly.

I must bypass each one on a case by case basis, nothing else is possible.

Not at all.

I enjoy it thoroughly.
