Easy List, your filter is TERRIBLE.

I cannot read the news articles and see the images for the news articles because your filter is blocking images that IS NOT ADS! You have been doing this for several months now. I have reported this to Adblock twice already, but it is not Adblock blocking the images, You are blocking images. When I disable EasyList in my Adblock settings, then none of the images are blocked.

EasyList is preventing me from reading the news on a news article and you are continuously doing this over and over again. These are not ads, these are images for the related news articles on a highly reputable news source, they are not a tabloid newspaper!

Code: Select all

Code: Select all

However, if you see now ads (after adding the filter above) you should give up adblock / ABP and install uBo (ublock origin)

Cleaned up your post OP. We do not use CAPS around here that's considered yelling. Reputable Reuters? Okay that's up for debate. :roll:

Consider this your warning to remain calm and act according to the rules failure to do so will result in your posts held indefinitely or account removal if the behavior continues.

Which I don't see the necessity anywhere, but yeah let's blame ABP, instead of another bad website.

No blaming @Khrin

ABP is still implementing things already available in uBo and which can block reuters crap without other incidents.

Do I understand that abort a javascript function/variable cannot be bypassed?

Not sure :roll:

Hi,

now the filter was changed to

Code: Select all

||reutersmedia.net/resources/r*&w=*&
https://github.com/easylist/easylist/co ... d20643dad8

I don't see how this helps? Most images are still blocked.

Best,
