Adblock and Imported Lenses to Hubs

    Just got the email about my 300+ lenses being imported to hubs. I excitedly went to check them and got the scare of my life. Investigated a bit and learned that Hubpages is blocked by AdblockPlus.

    At Squidoo most of our earnings came from Amazon - most of our lenses are geared towards Amazon products, lists, etc, because that's what the Squidoo direction was, so when making our lenses, we went with the flow, not against it.

    I think the magnitude of this will hit from now on as everyone gets their existing lenses transferred and the earnings (for many of us a full time income) basically vanish overnight because Amazon simply is not visible to millions of people online who click on the hub and don't see any of the products (links) for what we're talking about on the hub.

    Is there any chance for Hubpages management/IT of looking into it? I mean if Squidoo managed to do it, isn't there a way for Hubpages to also get a whitelist? Could you please at least consider looking into it?

    HP is not going to do anything about adblock according to Paul Edmonson.

    I'm really bummed out about this, because I have a couple of transfers that are set up to use the Amazon capsule as the image for the thing I'm writing about. My list of films about artists looks really bleak without those images showing!

    Oh boy am I ever in trouble then. I was wondering why my lenses had not made it across yet. Hopefully they are working on a way around that.
