NoScript Author replies to AdBlock’s claims

Wow… this “apology” just upset me off even more. No sincerity at all; still blaming the other party.

NoScript logoI screwed up. Big time.
Not just with Adblock Plus users but with the Mozilla community at large.

I did something extremely wrong, which I will regret forever.
I abused the power and wasted the enormous trust capital gained by the NoScript add-on through the years to prevent Adblock Plus from blocking stuff on four internet domains of mine, without asking an explicit preemptive user consent.

This is absolutely inexcusable. Something I would never conceive again for the life of me.

IMHO the Easylist maintainer did his job up until AdBlockPlus broke NoScript’s site functionality, but that wouldn’t have happened if the NoScript author didn’t try to circumvent AdBlockPlus in the first place.

Let’s face it.. both parties messed up, but this guy just played dirty.
