About

KnowYourMeme's AdBlock Pop-Up is a pop-up shown to users of KnowYourMeme who use AdBlock. Since its inception on August 15th, 2017, the pop-up garnered massive backlash from the userbase, who made edits of the image in retaliation. As a result it no longer shows up upon every refresh [citation needed].

Origin

On August 15th, 2017, the website KnowYourMeme updated to include the pop-up shown below. The pop-up has been hated on for numerous reasons, because it appeared every time a new page is opened/refreshed (this was changed a few days later to just appearing once)[1], but mainly because KnowYourMeme has a negative reputation among the community for containing ads that, at best, cause lag, and at worst, install malware. After the addition, Staff member Brad posted a thread about the popup on the site's maintenance forums[2]. The post has since become the most disliked forum post on KnowYourMeme, reaching over -200 karma in the span of a day.

Spread

The first edit of the pop-up was posted on the forum one hour after Brad's original post by user Triangle Mare [3]. It has earned over 70 karma in one day (Shown below, left). The second was posted by user Tyranid Warrior five hours after the original post. It has gotten over 20 karma a day later (shown below, right). After this, more edits were made under the KnowYourMeme page gallery.
