SpyBlock, as the name suggests, blocks anything that is a privacy issue,
and this is not the case you describe. Also it would be extremely
disrespectful. As an activist you should be encouraging people to
donate, not trying to prevent it!

I see nothing wrong with advertisement (as long as it is done without
intruding in your privacy) or donation requests, and I certainly don't
see how that should affect what blocker to use by default for IceCat.
