Is it possible to block the advertisement to the right at this page with adblock (very annoying!)? How?

I use this one:

/https?:\/\/r?ad([sz]?|images?|img|tech|serv(er?)?)\./

If you have the option of blocking the ad iframe instead of the ad image, you should. Fortunately it is possible in this case.

Generally speaking you shouldn't use Adblock to block any single ad (see the Volvo example above). The filters should be as general as possible without causing many false positives. That Volvo filter would need to be modfied as soon as ads rotate the next time (and they will).

Naturally, I want a general filter. I have nothing in partcular against volvo-ads, just want to read my "newspaper" without disturbance (I do not even have a drivers licence).
