@Rhana, did you ask your developers (adblock 3.1 on chrome) about this issue ? :)

Looks like they're messing with our element hiding styles, our sheet is still there with all the rules, but the rules no longer have the display: none style. Continuing to investigate...

Yep, have come up with a way to make sure display: none isn't tampered with. Works fine for Slickdeals, I'm seeing no ads there now.

Replying to mapx:

Since all the ad-blocking mojo comes from ABP now, no. :) Actually, fanboy of Fanboy's Annoyances suggested reporting it straight to you guys. Here's the post:

I was more aiming at more chrome/Adblock Plus specific issue here, given Firefox has no issues with the site.

Looking at the elements; (This is one in question).

But in Easylist we already have.

(Yea, you don't need to add any more filters. I have a version of the Adblock Plus for Chrome code under review that blocks these ads fine with just EasyList.)
