Google starts punishing AdBlock users with unskippable YouTube video ads

Multiple reports have appeared on Twitter that even with AdBlock enabled, YouTube is now able to show video adverts. It gets worse, though, because Google has apparently disabled the skip option, meaning you are forced to watch the entire advert, which can be multiple minutes long. I guess they want to encourage you to disable AdBlock so the skip option reappears. – Matthew Humphries, Geek.com
