So much for websites crying about AdBlock stealing food from their children's mouths.
Now AdBlock prevents shitbirds like this from benefiting from attempting to steal food from webmaster's children. Which makes it more better, right?

I would welcome AdBlock having some sort of micropayment sponsor system baked in where I could choose to support sites whose content I value. Twenty years of the web, and still nobody's figured how to make that shit work. Is Ted Nelson even still alive?
