With Opera's free built-in Ad blockers for mobile and desktop, you can simply unblock ads for that site while still blocking annoying ads everywhere else. Just click the shield icon to the right of your address bar and select Turn off for this site - this will add the site's address to the list of exceptions and allow ads.
