    The ads seem to have a transparent background so you can see the blocking message through it...

    I get this as well, even on my home computer where advert blocking is not switched on. I agree about the transparent backgrounds.

    I dont mind having the ads - just odd that half the ad appears to be both blocked and allowed at the same time?

    The thing that says you are blocking ads is the actual frame, and the adverts sit on top of that. So when ads are blocked, you see the bsf crying frame. (a decent adblocker just removes the whole frame )

    So as said before these ads are semi-transparent, and as such showing the frame below.
