But I believe the main point of Wladimir's post, which I agree with, is that it was unacceptable to add obfuscated code to NoScript 1.9.2 to interfere with ABP with no mention in the changelog. Giorgio, you will have to answer for that if you want to regain my trust.

Firstly, I won't respond to your above comments; this is undoubtedly your business and source of income - it appears that you want to fix the issue and let's let your users decide.
Two last things:
FAQ's are not placed to put in important information such as when your coding bypasses the functionality of the programming. In addition, what exactly is the about:config line "noscript.xblHack with value http://hackademix.net/". I don't see that anywhere in your GUI lists.
and perhaps a bug?
var AdBrite_Iframe = window.top != window.self ? 2 : 1;
var AdBrite_Referrer = document.referrer == "" ? document.location : document.referrer;
AdBrite_Referrer = encodeURIComponent(AdBrite_Referrer);
Again, too bad about what was a good product.

Adbrite script runs perfectly and is not blocked.

I don't know what your definition of malware is but that's just about spot on. Calling this willful act of sabotage a "faux pas" is absurd. I certainly won't let NoScript or any other piece of InformAction software anywhere near my computer again. Trust, once lost, is rarely regained.

These filters were needed to block the ads on your site and because you kept changing them (and you still are changing them). Breaking a site of you was never intended but Ares needed to change the filters in this way only to block the ads.
I have heard that you can do this yourself by doing an about:config, filter on noscript and change
noscript.firstrunredirection to false
