Offer a paid option to suppress the 'you're running an ad blocker' popup

I have an adblocker running and I'd prefer to leave it on since I print maps off the website and like not having an ad in those printed maps.

I'm also conscious that I'm depriving you of revenue so have thrown money at your givealittle page.

I'd like to suppress the 'you're running an adblocker' popup. It'd be great if you could add functionality to sell me a licence key or whatever, that disabled the popup. I reckon a good portion of your adblocked audience would pay $10 to $20 for such a key.

Win-win I reckon. But I'd probably rather live with the popup and get more functionality! It would be down to how much of a revenue opportunity such a feature would be (% of viewer using an ad blocker x % who would buy a key to suppress the popup).

        As a quick fix I'm thinking about dropping a cookie that would stop the nag from displaying more than once a week / fortnight / month.

        If I was to offer a paid option I think I'd like to provide a bit more value for $10 / $10 a year. Perhaps a "my places" for bookmarking locations and "my uploads" for adding kml / gpx files, with the option of making the files shareable. I think I'll add that as a new suggestion to see how much interest there is.
