Sorry to make my first forum post a jerk one. The product seems wonderful. Thanks for the forum. Thanks for everyone who pitches in. I'm actually a constructive nontroll. I'm just pissed at this senseless waste of time because some designer thought they were hip or cute or whatever mental malfunction led to this.
The blue/red system is EXTREMELY stupid. This is when you expand the octagon icon while [desktop] browsing Firefox.
Does red mean "no ads for this site" ?
Or does red mean "no blocking for this site" ?
After wasting time trying to make sense of it, it seems to be the latter. Are you kidding me? That would be the stupider interpretation, although either way, it's ambiguous, which is foolish design.
If the designers would summon the kindergarten common sense to just say "click here to enable for this site" or "click here to disable for this site" I wouldn't be wasting my time, or yours, or the developers. In fact, in order to make accuweather.com work (it refuses to on Firefox 64), accuweather even SAYS to "Select Disable on <this website> to allow ads."
Does that mean that it USED TO work logically, and now some new age dumbass millenial site designer decided blue/red is better -- is "cooler"? Please. It takes a TINY bit of screen real estate to explain WTF is going on.
And also, *VERY* IMPORTANTLY, for the benefit of designers who seem to have some mental block on it (especially on Android), PLEASE include the tiny phrase "click here to" or "slide on to". Just saying "foo" can mean "click here to do foo". It can also mean "foo is in effect." That ambiguity results in 100% contradictory interpretation. And time waste.
I'm not a kid or an idiot. I know how to logically deduce answers from available information and exclusive testing. I just don't like having to waste time doing so when it's senselessly unnecessary due to lame design. For example, on some Adblock screens, or Android screens, I may not be setting something for a week or more at a time, so I repeatedly have to stop and figure it out. Common sense design would eliminate that time waste. Leave the dumbass nonintuitive design to Microsoft, huh?
I fully expect to make concise ( ) and tangible contributions to the forum in the future. I like to save people's time, not waste it, and share the wealth when I learn useful tips or tricks. Just as I will no doubt benefit from that kindness from other forum users. Kumbaya, and group hug, eh?
