    I was wondering how to block people who use adblock?
    So they cant read my site until they turn off adblock.
    Any ideas?

    You cant block. Adblock does not identify itself somehow, and for chromium it does even load ads but hides them
    You cant to anything but politely ask them to disable it for your site.

    PS: I use adblock.

    Just block their warning about adblock as ad.
    But that's just some shity site with java malware.
    Most of sites that try to block adblock are the same, just shity site filled by ads with some shity content and ad malware. So there is nothing to loose if you see site blocking adblock, you just close it and add to google search blocked sites to never waste time with it.

    This is actually done by many major sites...they compare the cookies delivered from the main domain and their ad network (in fact their ad network may even deliver the site)...when they don't 'match', they can then set a cookie to change your 'user experience'.

    Of course, this is definitely not a WordPress issue....
