Pardon me if this has already been discuss ad nauseum, but...

Have you all considering a version of adblock that communicates with a central blacklist, similar to the spam blacklists? Maybe the client would periodically d/l the latest list, and when they'd block an ad, it would submit it to the black list...

That would likely require a (relatively) huge list that could be condensed into a fairly consise regular expression set. That said, check out Filterset.G (http://www.geocities.com/pierceive/adblock) for a good general-purpose list.

As helpful as his list is, it is general, and may or may not do what you want/block everything you'd like.. the only way to fix this and get everything you want is to write your own filterset. Use G's list to learn, but my advice is to work towards writing your own set.

Well, PeerGuardian from methlabs.org does this as it updates its lists from blocklist.org automatically. Obviously it's a separate program, but it's the most effective fast way to block ads in combination with G's excellent filterlist for Adblock. Proxy software is probably more powerful, but I find using proxy software too slow.

I agree that Eater's request is within the scope of the PeerGuardian project, and outside the scope of Adblock.

(There are also better proposals for automatically imported (user-specified) lists on this board. (Search for automa*).)

PeerGuardian 2 is at version beta5b, but is incredibly stable.
Here are the links you'll want to visit:
