[442] Unusually high amount of ads blocked on one page?

Postby ben30024 » Wed May 07, 2014 12:10 pm

i was watching a youtube video tonight, and i noticed that adblock was blocking 254 ads on the page. this seems too high for youtube, as youtube usually loads around 5 ads per page. has anyone else noticed this, and is it suspicious?

i am unable to reproduce the exact issue, but the link is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NO3VTXqMCoo
the video has a lot of mildly inappropriate language, viewer discretion is advised!

it seems to be an intended behaviour

when do you see those large numbers ? ==> when you click on the suggestions videos list
ABP will add the number of ads to the original number (when you first entered in YT)
every video clicked ==> add other ads to that number

ah, that explains it! i was on a marathon, so it would make sense that a lot of ads would be blocked! thanks!
