The Block Ads app stops some ads from loading, but doesn't remove them - why is this happening?

Currently the Block Ads app blocks ads via host-based blocking methods (functionally it’s a bit similar to a Pi-Hole). This means that Block Ads does not currently filter HTML content. In some cases, just blocking the host will be enough to prevent the ad from loading completely; in other cases you’ll be left with an ad that is ‘blocked’ but not ‘removed’ like this:

Rest assured, this is something that we’re aware of and will be looking to improve upon in future iterations of Block Ads :smiley: Stay tuned for updates on this!
