I found out these sites detect adblock/ublock origin when you enable easylist(which everyone does). I used MVPS and Peter Lowe's list and disabled easylist and this site didn't detect adblock! Granted easylist is more effective than other adblock lists.
GOOD JOB!
This works on Forbes.com and Businessinsider.com, as well.
Blockzilla List by itself also works.

Interesting thing, I just disabled all my custom uBlock filters and restarted firefox and I still get no popup to disable my adblocker. I'm still trying to figure what's blocking it.
Are you using Firefox? I just tested airplane link on Firefox Nightly and no popup even with easylist enabled.

Try testing on this link: BlockAdblock | Stop Losing Ad Revenue
Note that it'll take a few seconds before you get popup. Or you can click on any link on that site.

Exactly, I get no ads or popups in the airplane one. That BlockAdblock does give me a popup in firefox with uBlock on.

However, I just tested BlockAdblock in my Chrome, where I don't have and never had an adblocker installed... and it still says it picked up I'm using an ad blocker, I get the same message there. BlockAdblock seems to be lying a bit to their customers....

I disabled easylist on Opera and blockadblock doesn't show any popup. On Chrome, even after I disabled ublock origin, it showed popup. But after restarting the browser(I was in incognito mode), it didn't show any popup.

I tested on Internet Explorer and you're right. It is lying. I restored my hosts files(I only use hostsman for testing and retore the original hosts after testing is done). Well, my anti adblock test site is a scam lol.

It's very weird, now I stopped getting the popup in Chrome. I thought it might have been Mcafee WebAdvisor being detected as an ad blocker or something but nope!
I ran some tests and popup stopped appearing, so I deleted my browser's cookies and opened block adblock again. And now it gives me the message again. So it probably stores some cookie after the message appears for the first time that avoids it to appear in the future!

Yes, that may be the trick. I think I may have to find another anti adblock test site now.

I got adguard installed and turned on and haven't been hit on that site. Am I just plain lucky?
