Supporting DuckDuckGo by allowing ads

Hi there,
I've just noticed that you put a little message on the side asking adblock users to make an exception for DDG. I'm fine with it. But since I never click ads anyway, does it still count as support? Do you benefit from just displaying ads?

I got your message about disabling adblocking for duckduckgo.com.  I tried to read the url link from your message ("make an exception") but it did not work.  Something is wrong with dukgo.com.  So I manually disabled adblock for duckduckgo.com, but I still get the message anyway -- that being the one shown below:
We respect your use of adblock. Some of us use it too. Will you please make an exception for us?

I made an exception for duckduckgo.com, but the message still showing. I'm using the Adblock from Debian Wheezy repositories with Iceweasel.

This should've been cleared up. Can you please try clearing your cache and letting me know if it still happens? Also, does it still show the ad when it displays the message?
