Allakhazam "stop adblocking us" banners don't stay blocked

Postby Technogeek » Sat Jan 15, 2011 2:16 am

The block rules I use for Allakhazam's sites don't quite work properly. The first time the element gets blocked it 'll vanish from the site just fine, but if I go to a new page or reload the current the elements just pop back up. These are the rules I use (for a quick example):

camelot.allakhazam.com###header-box
camelot.allakhazam.com###column-box

This is on Adblock Plus for Chrome, version 1.0.25.

No no, the above aren't "blocking rules", they are "element hiding rules".
They are meant to "hide" HTML elements but they don't block anything.

On the said Website I see these rules in action:
camelot.allakhazam.com###column-box
camelot.allakhazam.com###header-box
camelot.allakhazam.com###square-box
*/ads/*
*.quantserve.*
*_ads.*

Note that the first three are "hiding" rules, while the other three are "blocking" rules.
If you disable the first three, the Website visualizes an invitation to unblock their advertisement so they can pay their bills.

Besides, ABP for Chrome does not work well as the Firefox version. Using the same filterset I see many ads passing through.
