There was a blue box on the right side saying "Have you clicked the button?" on most subreddits I read on April 1st.



Most likely, he is blocking ads


It wasn't an ad. Adblock did not affect the "have you clicked the button"...button.


It was definitely an ad[0]. But the Reddit subreddit ads I think are excluded from Adblock Plus if you have it set to allow "unobtrusive" ads (which is the default)

Not the button I'm talking about[0]. There must have been ads too, but there was a generic non-ad "Did you press the button" button on the front page in the days following Apr 1[1].
