you should keep ABP updated and check your acceptable ads list

I did get a couple ads on Speed Test but I updated and reset my ad list and that cleared everything up

I use ABP also and had no issues with it... never updated it since I installed it.

uBlock still uses less resources from the articles I've read (and even looking at the Chrome Task Manager, it's used less resources than ABP has). So I'm sticking with it.

I guess a mod/admin didn't like my gif avatar and removed it.

Don't think it was specific to you, necessarily. Seen issues with a few other members' avatars lately as well. Not sure if it's because of stuff going on in the background with the pending merger or not.

No Drama here! That's exactly how I felt, however I agree it's time to act like grown ups.
Thank you for keeping your promise Trotter.
