Sorry, ad blockers: German news site Bild says nein

Readers of the popular German-language tabloid Bild are finding out it’s verboten to try and visit the publication’s site with an ad blocker enabled. Effective Tuesday, anyone attempting to visit Bild.de with an active browser extension such as AdBlock Plus or uBlock origin, will be redirected to a landing page that says (in German), “With an Adblocker activated, you can no longer visit Bild.de.”The new policy does not affect anti-tracking extensions such as NoScript and Privacy Badger even though they effectively accomplish the same thing as an ad blocker.
