Weather page on www.wral.com

This filter

-120x90.
removes the thumbnail graphics for radar, hurricane tracker, maps & forecasts, etc. from http://www.wral.com/weather/

When I checked EasyList for this filter, I found a lot of filters that are based solely on an element's dimensions. Is that a good idea?
