Damn. Remind me again the point of AdBlock Plus?

I've made many changes to this site over the last few years and sometimes things get missed when I sweep for updates. I wrote this post 1214 days ago and might need updating or we're in a situation where I've explained something that is no longer accurate. If you found something incorrect or needs refreshing, let me know and I'll get it fixed.
