    This is an FYI for those unaware of these block lists. Have recently switched from FiltersetG. to Rick's lists:

    "Adblock Easylist" & "EasyElement"
    ...adblocking filters by rick752

    Two Different Filter Subscriptions for Two Different Reasons

    Made especially for the Adblock Plus 0.7 extension by Wladimir Palant for Mozilla Firefox and Seamonkey web browsers. The standard ad-blocking "EasyList" is also built-in to the new Adblock Plus 0.7 and can be added instantly during installation by just checking the "EasyList" box

    Standard Easylist Advantages:
    • The regular Adblock "EasyList" is in a neat, simple, vertical, simple expression list that is very comprehensive and easy to understand. The list has been maximized for great blocking with minimal false-positives. (any whotelisting is minimal).
    • The EasyList makes it possible to easily "enable/disable" any specific filter string.
    • The list is VERY precise with Alblock Plus 0.7's "hit counts" feature.
    • The EasyList & EasyElement filters will NOT interfere with any 'self added' filtering, other subscriptions, or any sites that you have marked as whitelisted when used in Adblock Plus 0.7.
    • Neither filter needs any added extension to automatically update. Adblock 0.7's subscription updater includes the option to either manually update a subscription or automatically update a subscription once approximately every 5 days.
    Privacy Statement(from website):
    "The "Adblock EasyList & EasyElement filters by rick752" are filter lists for the Mozilla Adblock Plus 0.7 extension. The 'adblock_rick752.txt' and the 'easylist-element.txt' files are plain text files that's only pupose is to create a list to block unwanted web page items to work in conjunction with the Mozilla Adblock Plus 0.7 extention. These files will NEVER contain any extra code to track, execute, exploit or extract information at all if selected from the rick752 or the adblockplus.org websites ... or from the 'subscription suggestions' in Adblock Plus 0.7."

    Works with: Firefox/SeaMonkey/Thunderbird/Flock/Songbird
