use this:
Code: Select all
remove links to URL: bakster.com


I'm sorry say this but that site seems to provide cracks and retail versions of software.

I think that pertains to ASKING for those things, not asking about blocking ads on those pages.

Shamuri is correct. :)

You could also try something along the lines of
Code: Select all
Remove Tables with text: width=468

though, that's likely to break some other sites. :)

I believe the "Block all banners with 468x60" option should remove that, but it doesn't seem to, perhaps Murray should check it out.

Other forums I've used have not been so tolerant, of course they were not forums of commercial softwares :)
I hope next time someone is reporting a site with adverts, url is not directing to crack-page showing software sorted by A :lol:

That image is allowed because of this entry in the default list:

My filter match - Don't match against keyword: /images/logo*gif [http://www.bakster.com/images/logo3rus.gif]

Since this entry fixes a lot more than it breaks it will remain in the default list for now.

In the future users will be able to "disable" specific entries in the default list.

For now, you are stuck with that image.

Hm maybe custom filter rules should override default filter rules?

Murray and I debated that as well.

If the custom list could override the default list then we believe this would needlessly increase the amount of tech support we would receive.

A lot of users just do not have the time to learn all the intricacies of adding entries to the list and they could easily and accidentally break entries in the default list and allow ads.

The conclusion we came to was it would be better to have a seperate category to simply disable an entry in the default list.

This way they could only override one at a time and would almost for sure know exactly what and why they were doing it.

Since we are busy working on fixes and features that take priority, this new category will have to wait until v4.8 or so.
