    As you're well aware the DuckDuckGo search engine is all about privacy. However, the Adguard Chrome extension apparently blocks some js when performing a search. The filtering log doesn't really help very much - can someone explain what is being blocked and why?

    I'm using English Filter, Spyware & Tracking, Social Media, and Phishing & Malware protection.

    Thanks

    Hello!

    This script is blocked:
    Code:
    https://duckduckgo.com/y.js
    
    Looks like this script is for showing Bind Ads:
    Code:
    if (DDG && DDG.show_default_ad) DDG.show_default_ad(1);

    OK, yes there is an ad 'opt in / out' option for DDG. I'm opted out but I'm still seeing the Adguard count, presumably because the JS is present nonetheless.
