For on this list who are not familiar with AdBlock, it is an advertisement blocking program that downloads pattern blacklists. Any URL that would be requested matching a pattern is not requested (to the best of my understanding). These blacklists are updated automatically on some regular schedule. The problem I see in Tor adopting AdBlock as a default-installed plugin is that it allows the controller of that list to censor websites without oversight. I think if AdBlock is installed by default in the Tor Browser Bundle, the list configured should be run by the Tor Project, since we have to trust it anyway if we're using its software.
