Adblock is not getting worse. Ad companies are getting worse. On top of that, they are not heeding the words of people who consume the media. People look for solutions when they are presented with a problem. This time the problem is unruly ads that inject malware and disrupt the user and track them across the web claiming to personalize the experience. On top of that, website owners are not curating the ad networks that they use. Its just fill in all of the blank spaces with graffiti, and tell the user "tough luck". Well now the user can do what it has to since they can't be bothered.
I find it particularly interesting that you don't see the irony here.
Ad companies are getting worse because they're struggling for revenue.
They're struggling for revenue because Ablock is getting //BETTER// at blocking adds.
Thus, there's no reason to heed the words of consumers because if they don't make enough money to survive, they'll have no consumers.
Thus, this is their solution.
See the cycle yet?
