## Rules
### Remove blocker detection
### Block blocker blocking
The Atlantic’s web site detects tracker blockers and prompts people to stop protecting themselves from trackers by turning them off. Needless to say, this is not acceptable as it violates [respect for human rights](https://ind.ie/ethical-design).
The Atlantic’s web site detects tracker blockers and prompts people to stop protecting themselves from being tracked on the web by turning them off. Needless to say, this is not acceptable as it violates [respect for human rights](https://ind.ie/ethical-design). We block their blocker blocker with the following rule and in the [refinements section](trackers/Ω-ignore-previous-rules/):
```mson
- trigger:
- url-filter: cdn.theatlantic.com/assets/static/a/theatlantic/js/vendors.min.1b5815d60a89.js
- if-domain: theatlantic.com, www.theatlantic.com
- url-filter: cdn.theatlantic.com/assets/static/a/theatlantic/js/vendors.min
- load-type: third-party
- action:
- type: block
```
### Hide blocker message
### Remove other tracking-related first-party assets
The Atlantic’s blocker message won’t display because the blocker detection script itself has been blocked. In case they change the script, this hides the visual message also.

The links in the video sidebar are dependent on a tracker. They are redundant and not essential so we remove the section. This should also help make the site less addictive.

Using Imagini's ‘VisualDNA’ technology, Web visitors respond to queries such as ‘My biggest vice is...’ or ‘My idea of love is...’ by clicking on images, and software algorithms analyse the choices made to learn more about that particular person's preferences, likes and attitudes; then, a profile is constructed of the person which the firm describes as that person's Visual DNA.” – [Source](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imagini)
