At Least This Shit May Be Over Soon

Hey Googlers, try paying more attention to your real cyber-world shit, & less to bullshit like changing your logo & starting a holding company.
Update: A thread has been discovered on the Chromium project issue tracker detailing this as a bug that needs to be fixed. The bug seems to be related to hosted apps being treated as full extensions. So hopefully in the next few days the ad-blocking override will disappear. Thanks to @Ertraeglichkeit for bringing this to our attention.

Ad-blocking extensions are becoming increasingly popular on the Internet, and websites that rely on ads to fund their existence react in different ways. Some have added a tip jar, started a Patreon account, or simply show a message asking visitors to disable the ad blocker. Google, it seems, is taking more drastic action on YouTube and bypassing AdBlock completely. It’s also punishing users for having it enabled.
Rat bastards. Even worse, incompetent rat bastards.
