If publishers choose to deploy such ads, they will not be blocked by
default by Adblock, Disconnect, Privacy Badger or other coalition
members.

Wait, there’s more than AdBlock who’s using a whitelist to allow “certain” ads through?

Looking at their coalition page, it looks to just be AdBlock. (Seeing as Privacy Badger and Disconnect are privacy add ons that just happen to block some ads, rather than ad blockers.)

They’ll still be blocked by me.

Happy to reward this behavior with my eyeballs.

Ads have a role to serve in society today - I like to be informed of products and/or services I may be interested in, and I like that publishers I enjoy can make money informing me of them! Some ads are even enjoyable in and of themselves. If they’re willing to play by the rules I tell my computer to follow, I’m cool with the attention tax they may require.

Now only if they ban flash from use on their network then we’re golden.
