Ad-doesn’t-Block Plus Premium Elite Edition

What’s the point of having ad blocking software if it doesn’t block any ads? Good question.

From the Verge:

Some of the web’s biggest companies have been paying to get around Adblock Plus, according to a new report from Financial Times. Microsoft’s Bing search ads and Taboola’s “recommended links” box are among the ads that are currently slipping through Adblock Plus’s filter, and FT confirms that it’s the intentional result of a paid deal between the makers of Adblock and the owners of the ads.

Sweet.
