Ad-block, flash-block, ... hell, just about EVERY kind of block.... are not just for you.
So don't think you're special in any way.
So no. Not taking down any blockers. EVER. Not unless YOU PAY ME to see ads.
I charge $10 per ad.
(contribution now sent in to support adblock plus...)

Best thread ever, people freaking out over ads like they deserve things for free, someone sticking his face on a T-Shirt, and...
Herp de derp lets ignore the recent resign for this very reason.Jesus titty fucking christ... THIS
However, the forums could use the same treatment, but I have a blackberry so it doesn't hurt me any.

Thanks! These were by far the most egregious offenders in your advertising arsenal. I'm happy with statically-positioned graphic and textual adverts, it was the dynamic pop-up and mouse-over ones driving me nuts.
Also, I have Adobe Flash blocked in Chrome, which means that I get great big grey boxes where some of your adverts are supposed to be. Is there a way you can detect that Flash is blocked and display a non-Flash advert instead?
Many sites are tolerable without adblockers, but Phoronix is a site that pushes you over the edge, it is one of the worst offenders of ads.
Initially I did not have adblocker at work, but Phoronix forced me to install adblocker because I did not want to get in trouble with my boss, because on Phoronix I would get ads about buying wives and women who want to have sex with me or something like that. So I didn't want people start wondering what kind of sites I visit at work.
I think Phoronix also used to have popovers and popunders and all kinds of annoying ads, full-page ads and floating layers and stuff.
Many sites I could tolerate with ads, but not Phoronix.
I still have non-obtrusive ads whitelisted.
