'AdBan' is now AdWARE... Rated 1 out of 5 stars
I'd used AdBan in the past. It was a decent add-on. Had this been an EARLIER version of this add-on, I would've given it 4 stars.
AdBan is now a PAID add-on.
Nothing wrong with that, per se. I DO support them.
However; this latest iteration comes with ANNOYING NAGWARE., and, in my book - that's a no-no.
I wouldn'te have even written this 'review,' had not the AdBan NAGWARE not asked me to.
So - AdBan, this is what you get - and deserve.
AdBlock Plus (Which I DO support!) is tops on my list. I've used it for several years now - stick with ABP. NoScript. Not AdBan.
First of all, read what does adware mean - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adware . AdBan isn't adware, because it doesn't show you ads - it blocks all the ads instead :)

If you started using AdBan before June 2011, then send your user_id from the http://www.advertban.com/ff/user_status page to firstname.lastname@example.org in order to suppress the 'buy' popup. Otherwise you can just pay for AdBan in order to remove the nag window, which appears only once a day. Btw, the price of AdBan's lifetime support is lower than the price for cheap fast food :)
