War breaks out between AdBlock Plus and NoScript

A quiet war has broken out between the authors of AdBlock Plus and NoScript and money is on the table. Both are trying to outdo each other by disabling each other's functionality.

The issue at stake is NoScript's behaviour of showing a change log window whenever it gets a new update, which of late has been updated rather frequently. And unsurprisingly, that change log window is filled with ads that generate revenue for NoScript.

AdBlock Plus on the other hand is committed to blocking ads regardless of where they are from; and this has stepped on the tail of the author of NoScript.

Disclosed in the blog of the author of AdBlock Plus are tales of deception, manipulation and trickery by NoScript, designed to subject it's users to it's ads and the race by each side to block and disable each other's technological defences.
