AdBlocker Detection

Now a days, where companies like Facebook and the likes use our information in unclear ways, it is not unexpected to see more and more Ad-blockers being used.
As a person that surfs the Internet, and being concerned about my privacy or how my data is being used, I totally get it when a person starts using an Ad-Blocker.

There is one huge downside to this though:
Websites that offer content for free depend on the income from these ads to cover their expenses.

Just to give you an idea: Tweaking4All looses about 40% of its income due to AdBlockers.
Keep in mind that even if we'd receive 100%, this would still barely covers the cost for running the servers, registering the domains, etc.
I'm not even talking about the huge amount of hours I spend on writing articles, writing free applications, and offering folks support.

A handful of users show their appreciation by sponsoring me, by sending a cup of coffee or a small donation (here).
But the very vast majority does not, and I do respect that as well.

Because of this, I wanted to make visitors more aware of what the impact of using Ad-Blockers is for those providing free content.
So here the friendly request, but most certainly not mandatory, to disable Ad-Blockers for Tweaking4All.

Please let me know if you have any feedback, experience issue, etc.

Like what you see and you'd like to help out? 

The best way to help is of course by assisting others with their questions here in the forum, but you can also help us out in other ways:

- Do your shopping at Amazon, it will not cost you anything extra but may generate a small commission for us,
- send a cup of coffee through PayPal ($5, $10, $20, or custom amount),
- become a Patreon,
- donate BitCoin (BTC), or BitCoinCash (BCH).
