KissAnime banning Adblock users

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

If you use any adblocker on KA, we strongly recommend disabling it. They have implemented a script that automatically IP bans users of adblocking extensions.

We don’t know why. Even the head mod wasn’t told about this, and at least 2 of the other mods were also banned because of this.

 

We’ll give an update if it becomes fine to use adblockers again.

huh, insta ban for using adblocker ?, and not a fore-warning or disability access on people who use adblocks ?, i guess that's one way of making everyone leave their site ?

 

i should be fine though, as i prefer downloading my anime over stream

edit: this give's me an idea on making a thread ;o

Not that weird to me, as those sites use ads to generate money to provide content that is not exactly legal. I pay for the services that have what I want, but that can get expensive.

I do wonder though whether or not they will be doing what Fandom and many other companies are doing, which is making it so browsers like Brave on iOS will not load their site because of ad blocking.

As a mod there like twig is, yeah, this was sprung on us extremely quickly.

I prefer to torrent stuff anyways. I'm all for legal sites as well, but for how expensive covering the most amount of anime would be, and then STILL not getting everything, honesty it isn't worth it to me. I'll gladly buy blurays eventually, which gives back a hell of a lot more to the studios I like, that's beside the point though.

All illegal streaming sites have kinda died recently anyways, though hell, I think the less popular ones are a hell of a lot better right now all things considered.

I wouldn't use KissAnime anyway, with the amount of ads they have on their site, you can barely enjoy watching animes. Basically it was a ripoff, to begin with. There are people who are offering these sort of services like Horriblesub for free. Though if you can afford it, you should definetely switch to some legal ways to stream animes.

Well I think KissAnime needs to cool it it doesn't need so much money from ads.
