Adblock blocking websites and videos

Postby bratspit » Wed Dec 23, 2015 5:41 am

In recent months there was an order by Indian Govt to all ISPs asking to block certain websites in india. This caused a great issue in the country owing to freedom of internet. Govt later revoked the order. However I'm surprised to see that a lot of these websites like novamov, thevideo.me, vid.to, vodlocker, etc. are being blocked when I'm using adblock proxy. Please note that these don't get blocked when I'm not using adblock. So easylist should not be blocking these sites too.

Hey bratspit!

Thanks for reaching out to us.
The EasyList subscriptions are lists of filters designed for Adblock Plus that automatically remove unwanted content from the internet, including annoying adverts, bothersome banners and troublesome tracking. You still have the option of disabling ABP for those mentioned websites. We hope to support customized filters in the near future.

All the best,

Hi,

Thanks for checking this out, and replying. However, I would like to bring to your notice that easylist is blocking websites and embedded videos, instead of usual ads, banners, etc. which is why i posted this to have it checked. I can provide a snapshot of the blocking for your reference, though i could not figure out how to attach images to posts.

Could you please re-check my concern?

I know i can try adding the site to a safe list but this is not a solution to me because to me the purpose of adblock is to remove unwanted ads, not prevent access to websites.

- upload your screenshots to imgur.com then post here the links
- provide video examples (links), explaining what's wrongly blocked, steps to reproduce etc
