I used Fanboy's Adblock List for a long time before Opera introduced extensions and yes, it did the job well. Once Opera Adblock extension became available I switched over to using that, mainly for the convenience of automatic updates. Hard to know if it's the current Fanboy list that is the cause of certain page loading issues or something else within the extension itself. Suppose I could go back to manually using the old urlfilter.ini method for comparison but it's not that big a deal to me really.
As you say, I suspect it's the way that some websites are integrating ads into their pages that is also a significant factor in this. After all, it's not in their interests to allow people to easily block their ads!
