I have been using the Google Crome extension named as "AdBlock Plus" from a really long time. Until recently I was not able see any advertisements on any sites, including this very site. But lately, I am seeing the advertisements on almost all the sites, including this one. What's wrong. Is it there has been a recent change in how advertisements are linked/rendered in the websites - to nullify the effect of Ad Blockers?

Edit: I am see adds on some particular sites such as [Not all the advertisements they show; but the ones that appear after you have logged in to your account]

AdBlock is still working fine for me. Make sure it's enabled and check the settings. –  Dennis Apr 30 '12 at 15:26
Which version of Google Chrome? –  iglvzx Apr 30 '12 at 15:26
@iglvzx Google Crome 18.0.1025.162 m, it's up-to-date –  user221287 Apr 30 '12 at 15:27
you could get a high enough rating to not see ads :) –  Jeff F. Apr 30 '12 at 16:00
@RishabhPoddar once you earn 200 reputation points, you aren't shown ads any more, except for community promotion ads and such. Also, adblock is working just fine for me on other sites (I have it disabled for Super User, of course). –  nhinkle Apr 30 '12 at 16:11

Which subscription list are you using to decide what ads are blocked? Personally, I prefer Fanboy's list. Easy list is another good one. Click the Wrench, Tools, Extensions, and then the Options link under Adblock Plus. See what filter subscriptions you have installed. Click the Add button to add more if you like. Don't go nuts, but if you are only using the first Google one, I'd add Easy and Fanboy's at the very least.
