The war against the Ad Blockers

Many web sites these days are identifying which browsers have Ad Blcokers configured, and ask the ad blockers to be disabled. I am not entirely sure whether it is the decision of the ad blocker developers to make these ad blockers easy to detect, or is it technically difficult to implement an ad blocker that can go unnoticed by these web sites.

To be honest, I did not do any research on what is really the case. There is of course some point in these web sites. Their major revenue is from the advertisements, and if we block it through the ad blockers, they lose their major revenue. So I am not going to blame them either. Just wondering who is responsible for the current weak situation with the ad blockers - or is it just Adblock Plus?
