Like it actually blocks you from using their site unless you pay more or say you white listed them and it will keep spamming you if you haven't whitelisted them.

I emailed their support team:

Why am I getting repeatedly asked to pay for an ad free experience or whitelist your site in a paid multi year league?

Here is the box: https://imgur.com/a/hmPQoLM

It prevents me from using our paid service unless I pay more money or whitelist your site. Why would I pay you to view advertisements.

Guys ad blocker is different from pop up blockers. Dave prolly has a popup block but not adblock, which also means he doesnt use Google chrome

It says right there that they rely on ads on pagento keep the site running.

Paid services doesnt mean we dont get ads. Ads exist within the same webpage ur currently viewing. It doesnt degrade our browsing experience by giving u pop ups if u whitelist fantrax. Shit like birk diamonds or ebay auction in small windows on top and bottom of website. Whitelisting it manually on adblock will no longer display that annoying msg.

Paul, that screenshot I posted is a pop up that completely blocks access to the site unless you pay or say that you've white listed their site and is not filtered by pop up blockers.

I don't mind the ads. I doubt they'd be in business without them and I do like their service.

Result

Really not the end of the world. Ads arent popups. They blend in sneakily well within the same webpage and dont bother me at all. After proper scripting, u see the green thumbs up icon for ur adblock logo at top right corner of browser on a permanrnt basis instead temporarily for the current session only. Still in experiment for me
