Got AdBlock on YouTube? Google will Now Punish You
Remember when YouTube started introducing ads before the video we ACTUALLY want to watch?! And how angry it made us? Well, we all went out and got AdBlock (or other similar extension) right? Well, Google is now fighting back and punishing users with AdBlock.

By forcing you to watch a 3 MINUTE VIDEO advertisement.

The tweak made by Google to allow the video adverts to work regardless is thought to effect all advert blocking extensions.
Google made this change, targeting all advertising blocking extensions.
Want to get past this? Here’s a trick I learned from the good ol’ internet that will remove the unskippable ads:
Uninstall the YouTube app within Chrome
enter 'chrome://apps' into the address bar
right click on the YouTube app
remove from chrome
You’re welcome YouTubers of Vingle!

Haha doesn’t it feel good @Rasika161! I feel like we should have a say in how we consume media too. like we should be able to control what information we take in, and ads are just preventing that! haha does that makes sense?
