No adverts. None. Ever.

For a horrible moment I thought I might have to look for a new adblocker for Firefox, as the developer of Adblock Plus is talking about revising that extension.

The Register reports that content providers will be able to post metadata claiming that their ad-supported sites don't feature 'invasive' ads, prompting Adblock to pass on a request for repeat visitors to whitelist ads from those sites.
As a matter of principle, my response would, without exception or hesitation, be negative, so pop-up whitelist requests would merely be annoyances.

Thankfully, as El Reg fails to mention, it'll be possible for users to permanently disable that functionality and continue to ban any and every advert.
