Hello!

I am a Product Manager on the Kinja team. We recently learned that our Commerce Insets are being blocked by EasyList. Our Commerce Insets generally follow a paragraph that is written by the editorial team at TheInventory.com, as part of a recommendation or a review. They are a visual way for us to provide additional context on a product to our readers, such as price, and how many of our readers have already purchased the item. This "social proof" is especially useful for building trust in our recommendation.

An example of an inset can be found here:

Code: Select all

https://theinventory.com/how-does-an-expensive-monitor-arm-compare-to-a-cheap-on-1833158991
by scrolling past the 2nd paragraph. In this article, our commerce editorial team is comparing a $70 monitor arm vs a $230 monitor arm in order to inform a reader before purchasing. The "social proof" shows that 358 of our readers bought the $70 monitor arm.

The kinja team is dedicated to creating a good experience for our readers, and we believe these insets add valuable information. We also have A/B tested these units against normal text links and have seen that users engage more with these designs than a text link.

If there are any concerns with how these insets are behaving, please let me know! Otherwise, please remove ##.commerce-inset from https://github.com/easylist/easylist/bl ... txt#L20071 and https://github.com/easylist/easylist/bl ... e.txt#L457

The second filter is a whitelisting one (exception), so it's ok.

fixed for uBo (ublock origin)

for other adblockers wait a decision of easylist authors.

For me it's legitimate content on a site about commerce, product reviews etc
