Does ublock origin or adblock actually block ads or does it just hide them while the advertisers still get the shills from my clicks?
Why would they? It would be bad for the advertiser since they'd have to pay the site owner for you having loaded the page, except with no chance of you going out and buying their product.
uHide just hides ads. To vlock them use a propper ad blocker like ABP. Here are some useful links:
> Adblock Plus
> Fanboy Ultimate List (This includes Easylist, Easyprivacy, Enhanced Trackers List and Annoyances List)
> MVPS hosts
>wanting to give money to the fucking advertising industry
Fuck you, that's half the reason why I block ads. The sooner they realize people can fuck with them on a large scale, the sooner they fuck off.
ublock more like uhide. i mean there is no denying it at this point the only thing that is being blocked by this extension are the pictures. inb4 abp shill.i dont even know how people can use a "blocker"(read as hider) that is literally worse than not using an adblocker.

Fucking hosts diehards fail to realize that it can't into cosmetic and rule-based filtering so you still need something like uBlock Origin to compliment it.
