AdBlocker works great and I've used it for years. Haven't seen a single advert here. The nice thing is it works on basically every site, not just this one.
The problem for web site owners is that they want the advertising revenue and they need users. Too many ad's and the users go elsewhere or use blockers. Too few ad's and they can't afford to make the site free to use, which is why some sites become outdated because the owner hasn't the money for new software.Shussssh... don't tell everyone or they'll all do it!
