The following screen message prevented any further access to this web address.

We see that you're using an ad blocker
This is a new feature which commenced this week on my PC.
News should be free. If I want to shop I will visit Amazon or eBay.
There are scores of other news websites available.
The UK Guardian site, https://www.theguardian.com/international
has a more dignified way of inviting support. They do not disable viewing.
My reaction to the Dailymail block is simply to exit from the page and remove
the address from my Favourites list. There are many other sites to choose from.
I thank ABP for their excellent product which enables a comfortable
browsing experience for me.

Neil I am not trying to start an argument, one cant get across the tone in ones voice with a typed message, I was mealy saying the Daily Mail in my option do not read comments and, lets face it, would not help readers avoid the Ads as they are money making for the paper when people place them on the site and when people click on them.
In my option it would be better to contact them direct but again I don't think they would help.
All that said I thank you for your help in this matter as it looks like ABP themselves have resigned to the position that it cant be fixed to avoid the Daily Mail from doing the blocking they do. Does that make sense :? :? :?

Hello!

Thanks for reaching out to us! We are aware that more sites are requiring our users to turn off their ad blockers. It is legally within their right to request this, but we do not think it is a best practice for promoting a fully sustainable web. Not to worry we are investigating ways to legally combat this to better serve our users. 

Thanks
