An AD blocker killed a project that I was working on for 4 months. It was one commit adding 2 lines that killed 419 commits with more than 2000 total lines of code.

The script that powers my project was placed on the filter list "EasyPrivacy". But is the project that I designed with privacy as the first feature trying to invade your privacy?
