Default QED Newspaper sites "Ad blocker return numbers"

With another Thread of mine I Tried to show how efficient My ad block app works
and I thought on, how about News websites? They are among my most visited , and as you know the same on Tablets don't return a Number (I'm using Avast!) The Ads are a bit wild there
  1. New York Times = 10
  2. Liverpool Echo = 11
  3. Manchester Evening News =12
  4. Daily Mirror =12
  5. London Evening News = 22!
  6. Daily Star = 24 !
    Now for the last 2 The numbers are Mad though I can view other URLs on PC with no disruption yet Avast! on Android does struggle
    They are:-
  7. The Metro(free paper)= 31!!
  8. and Finally for now. The Sun scoring 37 Blocks!
By comparison some popular file download Sites I've visited average the same or less than the Lowest Names on this List

They include Filehorse (5) Filehippo (7) and Cnet (1 or 2 ) This has a new Home page/Layout since I Visited it last
Like WOT , why don't Search engines Post the Expected Number Blocked forecast so we can be warned in advance and the Server Bounces the URL if it goes beyond a wholesale set number threshold. Cannot be that hard to implement?

While we are in the area, here is how the popular search engines scored, and there is a surprise loser.
Both Google and Bing scored 3 and No surprise about the joint winners Duckduckgo scored 1 together with www.yandex.com which is the English language version, does take some results from DDG.
The Loser? It's Yahoo which scored 19 hits OW! And when we've been extolling the Zero Spam returns in the Yahoo mail!
AOL by the way, scored a 6.

Do your figures relate purely to ads. Kaspersky Protector shows the following being blocked.

The Gardian - 23 banners
Independant - 4 banners
The Telegraph - 2 attempts to collect data
17 banners

Here is my angle on those Websites using Ad Killer Plus which does not Say what type of ads is being halted
Does have 2 instant kill?,control links on the Banner to Toggle the blocking of all Pop ups for this site and Don't know exactly what this will do:
Toggle the Blocking of Large media elements for this site So Try either or both of these if you are experiencing an Ads or popup snowstorm
Guardian ...Erm.. .68
Independent 26
The Telegraph scores just 11

PS The Times sadly clocks up 78 despite now being a Pay to view site
Yet its New York Namesake is free to view and Shows as a 10
