I am developing a website for an engineering company called 'ADS'. Their domain name is
Adblocker is blocking content on that (legitimate) site.
Is there code that will tell ad blocker that the site is legitimate? Or do have to get the client to buy another domain name?
See - Adblocker is adding the inline style="display: none !important;" to content.
How can this be resolved? Surely you don't expect an engineering company with international reach to change their name?????

false-positively spam-blocked comment by graphicz:
The website is still blocked by Adblocker

Do you mean I have to go to this Easylist and ask for an exception???

You cannmot just randomly block people's websites just because you don't like the initials they were born with!!!

So please tell me: are you expecting me to have to fix it or are you going to???

Try updating EasyList manually:
