If your site shows fullscreen crap telling me to turn off an ad blocker, I'm closing your site.
PS. I don't even run any ad blockers. But I do take measures to secure my systems that achieve similar results.

Those errors include building in a web-based “kill-switch” that cut short its spread, unsavvy handling of bitcoin payments that makes it far easier to track the hacker group’s profits, and even a shoddy ransom function in the malware itself. Some analysts say the system makes it impossible for the criminals to know who’s paid the ransom and who hasn’t.

The incompetence of these script kiddies is on the same level as Diebold posting on their own website actual images of lock keys used to "secure" its voting machines.
