No, but I am sure they are aware nearly every news/review site on the web uses ads. I cannot think of one that does not.
Also adblocker does not identify itself, although I think it used to, else I could redirect them or greet them with some information, without having to poll some file via a script that they could get round anyway.
Seems users had their feelings hurt by nasty messages displayed by some sites when they did id the plugin, what did they expect.
I browsed the plugin's forum and it is full of people wanting to get around websites who do obscure their content if someone is using adblocker. I mean judging by their forum for many it is not about a few irritating ads, they obsessive about blocking everything commercial.
I think a lot of these people are, to use that unfortunate term, freetards and clearly have way too much time on their hands.
