Adblock Plus is ineffective for surveillance protection by default as it comes with Acceptable Ads enabled: These ads are not meant to be "ads that don't track you".

any comments.

The statement is correct. Adblock Plus has thus far always chosen to offer additional privacy protection on a product-level, rather than making it a part of Acceptable Ads. Therefore, users can opt-in to the EasyPrivacy list to enable additional privacy protection. Because the Acceptable Ads Committee (https://acceptableads.com/en/committee/members) has now taken over any future decision-making of what Acceptable Ads should be(come), perhaps this status quo will change in the future.
