I use a school-issued chromebook for my school work (high school). For some dumb reason, the administrators of my school district placed adblock plus on all chromebooks a couple of days ago (I already had ublock origin). Now, they have added "adblock pro," a knockoff of ublock origin (it literally uses the same filters as ublock origin; from what I've read, adblock pro is basically an older version of ublock origin; I think it is 4.1 or something like that). In other words, what my district administrators have done is take a better ad-blocker and replaced it with one that is not as good (they even blocked all chromebooks from using ublock origin). Why would they do this????!!!! I want ABP and Adblock pro to be thrown out, but unfortunately, there will not be any opposition in my school because not enough people are tech savvy enough to know about this stuff (I am not by any means tech savvy, but I know just enough to know about ad-blockers). How can I educate my friends about this; only those who know a lot about technology used ublock origin prior to it being blocked by the administrators. The most frustrating part is the administrators probably don't even know that ublock origin is better than adblock pro and has a lot more users. I understand most students don't know much about ad-blockers, in which case ABP would be a better option. But to take a knockoff of a really good adblocker, install it and then block the real one, is, in my opinion, outrageous. Lastly, how do I get the administrators to realize that ABP and adblock pro don't even have the same developers? My apologies for lousy grammar.
"Ooops. uBlock Origin (extension ID "cjpalhdlnbpafiamejdnhcphjbkeiagm") is blocked by the administrator." WTH!
