## Block rules
### Ad-related bloat
All this script does is to load ad and tracking related functionality. For an added dose of evil, it also loads in an AdBlock detector and an anti-AdBlock script.
Violates: **respect for human experience** — slows down the experience unnecessarily. Actively combats people’s efforts to gain control of their web experience.
```mson
- trigger:
- url-filter: cdn.cultofmac.com/wp-content/plugins/com2014-ads/static/js/frontend-functionality.js
- action:
- type: block
```
StackCommerce widget: (StackCommerce is already blocked, this rule blocks the first-party script that relies on the blocked third-party scripts.)
```mson
- trigger:
- url-filter: stackCommerceWidget.js
- action:
- type: block
```
### Remove empty spaces left over from blocked ads
Reason: **respect for human effort and human experience** — gaps require more scrolling (effort) and create a sub-par experience.
```mson
- trigger:
- url-filter: cultofmac.com
- action:
- selector: .ad-region
- type: css-display-none
```
```mson
- trigger:
- url-filter: cultofmac.com
- action:
- selector: div.second-post-ads-wrapper
- type: css-display-none
```
### Remove sponsored posts
Reason: **respect for human effort and experience** — sponsored posts add little value while requiring effort to scroll past as well as mental effort to filter out. It’s too easy for people who are not paying attention to be fooled into thinking that they are actual posts.
(Unfortunately, this does not work yet. Leaving it here for when Safari gets :has() relational pseudo element support). [Radar: 24012378](rdar://24012378)
```mson
- trigger:
- url-filter: cultofmac.com
- action:
- selector: div.article-wrapper:has(>article>header>a[href*='sponsored'])
- type: css-display-none

### Here’s the thing with malware blocker blockers…
<img style='width: 100%; max-width: 480px;' src='wired-malware-blocker-blocker.png' alt='Wired tries to force you to compromise your privacy and security.'>
#### An open letter to Wired:
<strong>You don’t get it:</strong> It’s not about ads but behavioural targetting and tracking. We are disappointed that violating our privacy and compromising our security are the ways you have chosen to monetise your service. We hope you will stop blocking valuable tools like Better that protect people from trackers, ad-delivered trojans, and other web malware.
While we hope you will reconsider your malicious stance against human rights, we are not willing to sit by in the meanwhile and let you compromise people’s privacy and security. In addition to blocking the roughly 50 third-party trackers that your site exposes people to, we are also blocking your blocker blocker with the following rule:
```mson
- trigger:
- url-filter: assets/load
- action:
- type: block
```
Now it’s your turn: if you want to, you can inline all your JavaScript to break our blocker-blocker blocking rule.
Then, we can update our rule so it disables all of your first-party JavaScript…
We can play this game of cat and mouse all day long. Or you can ask yourselves: is this really the game you want to be playing…?
If you want to make money while respecting our human rights, you have ways of doing so without tracking us and compromising our security. You can use non-behavioural ads that don’t track people (like The Deck), switch completely to a subscription model (which we’d happily support), or use a service or model similar to Flattr or Tip The Web.
We urge you to [reconsider the ethics](https://ind.ie/ethical-design) of your business model.
You have alternatives. We hope you will choose one that respects the human rights of your readers.
