Clause 17 in section XVI of the LJ terms of service now reads as follows:
- Employ tactics and/or technologies to prevent the full and complete delivery or display of advertisements on LiveJournal pages. These include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Making journal style changes, customizations, or overrides that effectively block or substantially impair the display of advertisements on a Sponsored+ account's Content or other pages within the Service.
- Employing and/or providing software programs, browser scripts, or other technologies that serve to block or substantially impair the display of advertisements on LiveJournal pages.
This is not acceptable. I'm going to start seriously looking into ways of moving my journal off of LiveJournal and onto my own server. Nobody gets to tell me what my browser can and can't do. It's my computer and my software. I'm the only person who should have any say in what I'm running.
Anyway, the community no_lj_ads has some useful information on this.
