Adblock Plus Now Sells Ads

Adblock Plus needs to change its name to Adreplacement Plus. The company now blocks ads it doesn't like in favor of "acceptable" ads that are now immediately allowed through Adblock Plus’ filters by default.

Adblock Plus is launching a new service that... uh, puts more ads on your screen. Rather than stripping all ads from the internet forever, Adblock Plus is hoping to replace the bad ads آ— anything it deems too big, too ugly, or too intrusive آ— with good ads, ones that are smaller, subtler, and theoretically much less annoying.
