Have been running into more and more sites that detect adblockers, and do not allow access if you are using one. Not here to debate whether it's right or wrong, but I googled a way to stop it, and here is a way to fix it below, if anyone is interested. It's not too hard, but is slightly involved, as you have to change a few settings.

just use incognito tab on Google Chrome. That's also how I get around paywalls when I reach an article limit for news.

That would only work because you aren't running an adblocker automatically in incognito mode (if you don't have it set to run there), in which case there would be nothing for these sites to detect anyway.

Can someone confirm that this is safe to download before I do it?

Also, FWIW, I disabled adblocking for this site, as the ads are very unobtrusive.

I mean I guess it depends on which version you use but like if you use the ublock one, it is simply an additional list that just blocks certain connections. For the others, the userscript has access to your connections, so if you're completely paranoid about privacy then maybe give it another thought but it's pretty much harmless, but if you use ublock you don't need to install a userscript addon (but what happens for those is still happening for the ublock one behind the scenes anyway)

Either way, completely safe

And yeah LG ads are how all ads should be

LG ads on mobile are awful, particularly when you pinch zoom, they get disproportionately larger! Haha

Try Opera browser for mobile works great on this site. It justifies text blocks when you zoom!

Yeah the site really isn't built for mobile, but some browser apps do a better job than others
