Adblock Plus display Ad. for its mobile version

Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is definitively not what I expect from an Ad blocker.
Removed from all my workstations (replaced by uBlock)
(sorry, bad copy/paste in Description, ignore, should have be "Adblock Plus display Ad. for its mobile version")
I cannot reproduce this. How can I trigger this behavior?
Okay, I see now. It was added in 2.6.11, not 2.6.10. I'm packaging 2.6.11 right now.
Frankly, I don't see a problem here. It's only in the first run page, and it's informing users of a similar service from the same developer on another platform. There's nothing obtrusive about it, and it's only shown once. The message isn't intending to be obtrusive or annoying, just to let the user know that if they use Android or iOS, they can get the same service. It's still free, so there's no cost to the user, and by only showing it once, Eyeo GmbH shows good will.
Since this is not a software defect, I won't take this upstream. I encourage users who disagree to do so, but I don't see a problem myself.
Closed, not a bug.
