I just thought I might post this by Lynx (yes I was that person that was using Lynx to visit the site) - It runs pretty damn fast, has zero ads (even though I am a subscriber) and also looks a bit like a BBS. For all you complaining about ADS out there, use Lynx!

Edit: Just thought I would show proof. So I am using Firefox for this one. Do I get a prize for a post using Lynx with IPv6?

Interesting read. If you can detect users who use ad blockers, then is it possible to block those users from accessing the site while said ad blockers are active?

Although in saying that, some of the ads are blocked by my company when I visit from my work laptop, so maybe I should just shut up...

Yes but we are not doing anything like that. Check this other discussion for this topic.
