    According to drVano’s account, VMProtect Software were approached by Denuvo three years earlier, with the intent of using VMProtect’s tools in their DRM software. After deliberation, VMProtect claim they told Denuvo that the standard $500 license would not be sufficient to cover Denuvo’s needs, implying that a larger price would be sought for use. drVano then goes on to claim that Denuvo ignored this message, purchased a $500 license, and released their software.

    Adblock Plus is selling out to the advertising companies.

    Long Story Short: AD+ is creating an "Approved Ads" 'feature'* in it's adblocking program that will whitelist ads (thus bypassing your blocklist) and replace non-whitelisted ads with whitelisted ads on websites you don't even block ads on (thus possibly deny that site it's ad revenue).

    * Full disclosure, they claim this feature can be turned off.




    Note: Adblock and Adblock Plus are not the same product. Switch to Adblock and drop the inferior sellout.

    Agreed.



    I've been using Adblock for so many years I see no point in switching (as long as Adblock keeps doing it's job), though I hear ublock is supposedly a bit better.

    I think that has been a plan for some time now for Adblock Plus. The new aspect for me is that it replaces stuff even when you're not actively blocking a site.

    I think the viable end goal of ad blocking is to force advertisement companies to agree to a set of standards for ads that don't constantly ruin your browsing experiencing. So I am not fundamentally opposed to my ad blocker still allowing ads. I certainly have a problem with the ad blocker showing an ad that doesn't also help the site I am visiting.

    Ads must die!
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.
