The Ad Wars will soon result in sites using XMLHttpRequest to load the content. Blockers will adapt. Soon advertisers will use random page layouts with layered semitransparent divs to construct a page. Will become difficult for blockers to bypass... for a while. Heuristic will be used, then server request timings to detect them. Eventually blockers will realize it's easier to just take screenshots of the page and black out all of the ads. In the end it will be AI vs AI until the inevitable revolution.

Just another arms race.

Heh, the Wired article about no one being able to stop ad blocking blocks the page when adblock plus is used to view it.

Only if you let it.

Try uBlock Origin and NoScript (with adblock plus is you like), also set your browser to ask before allowing a page to redirect you.

That should avoid the vast majority of sites moaning about adblocking.

In the rare cases that it doesn't it's usually because they've layered the message over the content an then remove the message with scripts (something which doesn't happen since NoScript is obviously being used to stop useless annoying risky scripts).

Though that's easily solved by either uBlock Origin or AdblockPlus with the Element Hiding Helper, which will let you select an element on the page to block (also extremely handy for blocking crap you don't like on any site).
