    Most anti-adblock scripts I've come across detect the value of a certain variable assigned based on whether the ad elements on the site exist or not. If they're warded off, the variable's value remains undefined, triggering the script.

    Still, there are more clever pieces of code like this one I saw yesterday (BTW ContentBlockHelper successfully circumvents it where uBlock Origin fails):

    HTML:
    <div id="overlayxxx" style="color: white; background-color: grey; text-align:center;border:1px solid red"><br><h1 style="color: white;">Important Note:</h1><h2 style="color: white;">We have detected you use Adblock. Please disable Adblock and reload the webpage.</h2><h2 style="color: white;">We only use a small Ad banner to support this site.</h2><h2 style="color: white;">Thanks for your support.</h2></div>
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    
    function adBlockNotDetected() {
    }
    function adBlockDetected() {
           document.getElementById("overlayxxx").style.display = "block";
    }
    
            var importFAB = document.createElement('script');
            importFAB.onload = function() {
           };
            importFAB.onerror = function() {
                   adBlockDetected();
            };
            importFAB.setAttribute('async', true);
           importFAB.src = 'https://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js';
           document.head.appendChild(importFAB);
    
    </script>

    This war is heating up big time

    Ublock is holding it's ground but other ad blockers are not.

    In the next years we'll see an arms race between adblockers and publicity companies... The problem is that publicity companies have way more money for research and development than adblocker developers...

    That is unfortunate.

    Advertising has become so annoying (e.g. full page ones that you must close to view page), that I now use a blocker again. There is also the risk of malware.

    There are many ANTI- anti-adblocking extensions now. Grease monkey comes to mind, but a quick search in Firefox turns up several.

    The best way around those on Android, is a global adblocker, like Blokada, DNS66, or Netguard, from GitHub page.

    I might be completely wrong about this, but I think website revenue will be generated in the near future by cryptocurrency mining. Ads use to be a good source of income, but mining is much easier...

    Of course, all this depends on the cryptocurrency bubble, stability, or price.

    I tested here with uBlock Origin and the site does not detect without any warning..

    I've made a rule-based (no lists) Tampermonkey script disabling inline adblock detection scripts, but it doesn't work for linked scripts with src attribute.

    Cant reproduce here, I am using AdGuard 6.2 (windows client).

    Try to enable the "Annoyance" filter and see if it fix the problem.
