    I'm using a pi-hole to block ads on my home network, but as they say in the tutorial, you should unblock SNBForums...

    How? I've added snbforums.com to my whitelist and it's still blocked :-(

    When using a DNS-based blocker, you need to whitelist the ads domains themselves, not the site displaying them (since the DNS has no idea of the relation between the source of the ads and the site showing them, unlike in a browser blocker).
