The creator of the most popular ad blocker has pulled it from the App Store - Digiday

Less Peaceful

"Yesterday was a big day for iOS 9’s early slate of ad blockers, which shot to the top of Apple’s paid app charts.  Today, Peace, the most popular of those apps, has been taken down — all because of a little thing called ethics.

“Ad blockers come with an important asterisk: while they do benefit a ton of people in major ways, they also hurt some, including many who don’t deserve the hit,” said Peace creator Marco Arment in a post announcing the move. Arment sang a slightly different tune the day before, when he argued that users “shouldn’t feel guilty” about protecting themselves from the Web’s abuses."
