I suspect the answer to your first question is because people recognise lunacy spewed by your kind of lunatics as just that. Lunacy.
Between epic bouts of paranoia, complaints about a bug that impacted essentially no one (at least that I know of, and I maintain quite a few computers of all which have adblock isntalled on anything ranging from older versions of Firefox to this machine I'm typing on that has it on Pale Moon). No bugs.
You even attribute easylist problems to adblock. Easylist is a blocklist maintained by folks behind easylist. If you don't like it, adblock offers a huge variety of lists for you to subscribe to.
I genuinely can't be bothered to argue about this further. I bared a few weeks of watching the lunacy of hardcore "I must have no ads anywhere ever, and even asking me to check the checkbox is too much to ask" crowd explode in the wildest bouts of schizophrenia about the "Darth Vader behind ad block plus" (real quote that I remember to this day that made me finally stop believing that I'd hear any real arguments from that crowd).
And before the obvious "oh you're just shilling". Full disclosure: I have zero interest of investment of any kind in ad block plus other than to make sure that it blocks all ads for me properly. So far it has done so marvellously. And I'm really tired of constant whining by hard-core lunatics that appear hell bent to make ad block plus dev into some kind of evil entity just because he added a way to monetize the add on without infringing on my ad blocking in any way.
I do the same thing for lunatics whining the same thing about ghostery. "Oh noes, he sold out". Yeah, first page in options, first option. Shut the fuck up and untick the damn box. Thank you.
