Hmm, Hydrogenaudio updated their site and now I'm getting some false positives and can't pinpoint them. Please help Smile

The site: www.hydrogenaudio.org

my list (slightly extended version of Org's)

[Adblock]
.telkku.com/*.swf
.yimg.com/a/
/(ad-flow|adsdk|advertising|bizrate|prohosting|resellerratings|tradedoubler|\.atwola|\.atdmt|valueclick|\.adtrix)\.com/

/[\/]banner([sz]?\/|it\/|\.cgi|\.pl|farm\/|link\.|_pysty\.gif|source\.|.?\d*\.)/
/\/\?DC=/

/(aintitcool|aintitcoolnews)\.com\/(newline|foxsearchlight|ad*)/
http://global.suprnova.org:8080/super*.html

PS does anyone have tips for pinpointing false positives? I usually pick through the website's code but sometimes I can't find it.

Hit CTRL+Shift+A and click on the red entries. The box at the bottom shows the filter that matches.

On Hydrogenaudio the only ad that is removed by my list is the Google pagead and there are no other ads visible.

Murgos:

1. It's matching the map image, not the URL.
2. I have encountered dozens if not hundreds of instances of ads which start or end with a string of numbers.
3. Allowing digits will not give false positives if you set your filter up to avoid them properly.
4. [0-9] should be replaced by \d

1. ok, my fault
2. at the end? ok. at the start? examples? maybe there are some, but i never noticed any. maybe because these URLs are matched by other expressions also. But anyway,a real-life example would be nice.
(The ads you run across on the web always depend strongly on the web sites you visit... i know that)
And, as i said, i have never seen ads with digits before _and_ after the "ad".
3. "ad" surrounded with digits will always match hex values, e.g. in session ids. You can only avoid this with whitelists, but they are not implemented yet.
4. I am a novice to regex. But i will change it.

2. I visit hundreds of sites daily to search for ads and false positives, so I don't know specifically where I find any specific string.
3. It will only match hex values if that's your entire string. Consider my *ads* line (I've stripped out the lengthly content - look at the real file for details).

/[^\w|=|\+|%]_?\d*(PRE_PREFIXES)(PREFIXES)?_?ad[sv]?(SUFFIXES)?\d*(POST_SUFFIXES)?[\W_](EXCEPTIONS)/

Thanks, G.

It would be kind of neat if Adblock had an autoupdate feature like 1.0PR Firefox is using now for the Extensions in general so I could auto import filters when new ones are released by you for instance.

Side-note: (not a buggy filter list just insteresting)
Also... looks like nwvault.ign.com is remaking their layout.. the site looks funky.. Razz.
Ads are disseapearing here and there.. I got several different instances of the site. Hehe.

Back on topic:
Keep up the good work G.

Oops.. err.. nevermind. I guess there is a problem...

I never saw the site with adblock off. There is a ?serious? false positive here. The filterset takes out the header and some of the images including some of the background images. Please verify with your latest Filterset. Thanks G. Subject Link below.

Link

Turning on and off adblock shows me the changes.

With Hide Ads on instead of Removed Ads (which I use normally) less of the images are missing but if you watch some of the images flicker on and then go off instantly.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041015 Firefox/0.10.1 (MOOX M3)

Just in case anybody was wondering.


Bah... somehow the latest filter list wasn't saved when I imported it. I must have hit cancel or something because I had imported it once and then it was replaces by my buggy 10-13a list. The 10-14c list is just find.. urgh.. sorry about that.. Neutral thought i had something there. Razz.

Hah. I uploaded it right before reading your post. When I read the first part of what you wrote ("serious false positive"), I immediately removed the new version to make the adjustments. Then I read the rest of your post (that there was no problem) and put it back.

Sorry bout that G. Lol, I thought it was the filterlist but I just somehow didn't get it updated properly the first time. But it works prefectly fine now. Thanks for updating it. (Although a neat update thing to remind ya to update notification would be useful. Razz) I wonder if the Adblock Devs could think up a way of doing that. Question

Ok, here's my list to help if you can digest the raw data and spit out something that resembles some reg-exp to help with cutting down the size of this monster. I'm no good at this sort of thing, so I will give you the sites that I've run across that give me ads. Thanks.

The regxp you see at the top of the file has been culled from the sticky.

Hey G...
There is a site called www.9down.com and it has some adverts that come from online.265.com that aren't blocked by adblock.
and when i try to access online.265.com by itself it comes up as a forbidden access site but the image is accessable.
The image links to a chinese? site called union.265.com but all there images are on union.265.com so unless there is any major issues you see I think online.265.com hosts just ads.

/Ieremiou

And I am using the latest one from today 10-18-04a

I'll check it out tonight.

In the future send me an email - I don't want to take over the forum with issues specific with to Filterset.G (you can find my address in "contact.txt").

I see that the script is loaded, but I don't see any ads. Regardless, if I can't verify that the domain is solely used for ads, I can't make a rule for it.

Please don't hesitate to email me if you find more problems.

You need to unblock "redirect". Your filters are going to result in tons of false positives across the board.

You can merge those four into a single RE filter.
Code:
/\Wad(frame|vert(entie|isers|ising)|server|sweb|s|v)?\W/

Yes, I could, but this will also match */ad/* and *.ad.* then and that could lead to false positives.

Example a newspaper in the Netherlands "Algemeen Dagblad". http://www.ad.nl

Most of us are probably using English-specific filtersets, so that's not a major concern (I've not heard of any other FPs by blocking ".ad.").

Just remove the question-mark after the paranthesis then. That way it won't match on simply "ad".

I'm sorry to be so nitpicky but then it won't filter http://ad.* which now doesn't seem to produce false positives

You could try putting (?!\.nl) just before the [\W\d] at the end of your filter - or the terminating delimiters at the end of your filter so:
Code:
/\Wads?[\W\d]/
becomes
Code:
/\Wads?(?!\.nl)[\W\d]/

This will allow the filter to work unless it is followed by .nl. This may let too many ads through but it may be worth a try.

Using G's Filterset I get no troubles loading up the below website.

http://www.ad.nl/

Personally I think his filterset is the most realiable I've ever come across and instead of making my own I'll stick to benefiting from his hard work. Wink

That site is currently blocked by Filterset.G, so I'm not sure how you're getting it. Regardless, ad.nl will be unblocked in the next update.

Because that rule REQUIRES the "banner" part to be followed by either "s", "id=", a digit, or an underscore.

You can fix that by adding a ? after the second parenthesis, making it optional.

You can also remove either the ? after the first parenthesis, or the last | inside it. They are meant to do the same thing.

Code:
/[\W\d_](top|bottom|left|right)?banner(s|id=|\d|_)?[\W\d]/

All-

For those that may be interested, here's another list that has served me very well. It can easily trace its heritage to this thread, but changes and additions have since been made.

As each ruleset is a reflection of the user, my goal is to eliminate as many ads as possible as well as the invisible logging and profiling 'tokens' that are present in many web pages. This is the motivation behind the "stats|logs|...|...' rule. I try to obtain just the content of a page, not all the other frilly stuff so many places add "for" us (e.g. the last four rules, specifically).

Hope this helps, and, as always, comments/optimizations/critisisms/thoughts are welcome.

While I eliminate ads and ad tracking, I prefer to leave general tracking and counters intact. They don't get in the way or take any time to load, and can be vital for webmasters to improve their sites. Blocking cookies keeps the affair impersonal.

Hi,

I am using this filter:

/\/(ad(s|v)?|clicks?)(\/|\.|[A-Z0-9])/

to block sub-domains like
http://ad.domain.com/...,
directories like
.../bla/ads/test/...
and it also should block things like
.../adPics/...
but, for example, it should NOT block this:
http://adblock.mozdev.org/ .

Unfortunately, adblock is case-insensitive. Also, it seems to ignore modes like (?-i).
Is there any solution for this problem?

/\/(ad(s|v)?|clicks?)(\/|\.|\d|pics)/

If Adblock was case-sensitive, filtersets would be ridiculously massive.

Yes, for that reason I want it only to be case-sensitive for this single filter.
.../AdPics/... is only an example, there are too many possibilities to cover them all by adding them to the filter.

There are many possibilities, but it's certainly possible to make a rule to catch them. Check out the *ads* rule in my filterset (it's the really long one).

PostPosted: Sat Oct 30, 2004    Post subject: my adblock list, its huge Reply with quote

yes, my ad-blick list is massive Some of it is generic ones from this thread, others are not. It blocks hundreds of ads specifically. Its not incredable effective but it does work fairly well. Its also incredably redundent. Please dont flame me for this, just wanted to spread the love. Here it is:

Why don't you use wildcards, i.e. *, for the common ad domains?
Blocking every single adimage is nonsense.

That's just ridiculous.

1. Never block a specific URL
2. Use regular expressions

I have a feeling that whole thing could be brought down to less than a dozen (relatively short) lines quite easily.

I'll try to be a bit more constructive. It seems you do not like the idea of RegEx's, which is a pity, but your list can still be radically shortened and here are some pointers:
1 - remove all filters starting with http then containing doubleclick. They are already covered by your *doubleclick* filter. Also remove the /doubleclick/ filter as it is functionally the same as *doubleclick*. You could even remove the *s and simplify the filter to doubleclick.
2 - Change */fastclick/* just to fastclick then remove all filters starting with http then containing fastclick.
3 - You have a filter http://ads. Remove all filters under it starting http://ads.
4 - Change your filter */banners/* to banners then remove all filters starting http:// and containing banners.
5 - Add a filter http://adfarm then remove all other filters starting with http://adfarm
6 - Add a filter http://addserver then remove all other filters starting with http://addserver
7 - remove your filters starting http://adserver and any other filters starting http:// and containing adserver. They are already covered by the filter *adserver*
8 - add a filter atwola.com or perhaps http://ar.atwola.com then rempve all filters starting http://ar.atwola.com
9 - remove all filters with mediaplex in them as they are covered by the */ads/* (which you have in 3 different forms - */Ads/*, */ads/* and *ads*). As belt and braces, you may want to add a filter mediaplex. I would also remove the *ads* filter. It is a bit too dangerous.

More simplification is possible but this is a start.

I seriously suggest you try G's filter set or the ones in the advanced stickies and post back if this then gives you problems.

Because that rule REQUIRES the "banner" part to be followed by either "s", "id=", a digit, or an underscore.

You can fix that by adding a ? after the second parenthesis, making it optional.


it helped me for home_middle_banner.html
but not here http://www.---.edu/banner.jpg (i dont want to block that.)

so that is my false positive. now i know why advanced sticky does not block just banner.

so what revision i can have of this rule to so that if takes care of both cases?
/[\W\d_](top|bottom|left|right)?banner(s|id=|\d|_)[\W\d]/

thanks for your help.

well i realized something after playing with regexp and understanding what i am telling them to do....
filter...regexp or wildcards...need to be not to agressive.

so, if any of you can not come up with a perfect solution i can understand it.
there is no one-size-fit-all solution to this.
Smile

i have added another rule for home_middle_banner.html
which looks somethng like this...
http://www.---.com/home_*_banner*

(it also takes care of other banners on that site, they just happen to end with
's' as in banners, and where detected by regexp filter.)

Is there any particular reason why you've chosen to take a handful of filters from Filterset.G but decided not to use the rest of it?

Some of it is already dealt with via other filters, and I think there were one or two things that produced some false positives. Also, some things from that list might be absent due to updates more recent than my post.

You could block */advimg/* and */adgfx/*
But some of the banners are very specific and you have to create special entries for these in your blocklist or simply don't block them

Dots inside Adblock regexp character classes don't have to be escaped. Those []'s mean character classes.

OK all filters now back on list; only "quote area" problems I 'm having are on THIS forum - quotes show up for a second but disappear. Firefox General is fine. Some quote DO APPEAR on here, but are shifted far right - only noticed this "oddity" this morning but clearing random filters I suspect of doing it doesn't seem to help. I've got a "?" or "W" or "d" somewhere I shouldn't, I believe.

For now I'll leave my set intact but wish I could see the quote areas! Any help would be appreciated. This is such a TERRIFIC project and thread!

Well now this is just strange. Put all filters back on and the only PAGE affected is page 3 of this thead. They appear on others, although some are pushed "right" (not all). . Whew, that's odd indeed . . . .

Hi, I'm totally new to adblock. I just cut and pasted various scripts in hopes to block the ads on TitanTV.com's website. I'm too much of a novice to figure out out to block their ads on my own. Can someone be kind enough to take a quick look at www.titantv.com see what they can do to help me block those ads?

you can always download a set of filters such as the one that G maintains here. http://www.geocities.com/pierceive/adblock or just right click on the ad you want to block and choose adblock image or adblock Iframe. The more you use adblock the more comfortable you get using it.

After having looked at some of the filters people have posted on this board, I thought I would add the following tip:

In many instances, it would be better to match on word boundaries ("\b") instead of non-word characters ("\W"); the reason being, unlike a non-word character, a word boundary also occurs at the beginning and end of a string, but "\W" means _one_ non-word character (this doesn'tn include "^" or "$"). Of course, in many cases using \W is more appropriate. It just seems that in many of the examples, people are using "\W" when they really want to match "\b".

I got a nasty set of regexp as filters from one page of this forum yet an incredible thing happened: a flash movie with all those kwords inthe source: bannerfarm advertising servedby click (ANY filter should block such an easy prey!) comes through unharmed. http://www.business2.com/b2/web/articles/0,17863,1037197,00.html.
Any idea why this happens?

It happens because none of those words are blocked by your filters.

Those filters are from the advanced filters thread. It hasn't been updated in ages and should not be taken as a "complete" solution in any way.

If you want a good precompiled set of filters, I reccomend that you use Filterset.G. Be sure to read the instructions first.

hey, i've been reading and reading and reading.. i see all these users lists.. some are too long, some are redundant, and some work just fer 'their favorite sites".

would it be possible for the people that make this program, the ones who understand it and what it does the best show us their personal lists so we can use thiers?

i dont understand all this s|id\=)?[\W\d]/ stuff and dont wanna learn it, but i do wanna block ads...

it'd be nice to have one short to the point list that works great, and is allowed to miss the odd thing... i'm not gonna die if i see an ad cause it was sneakily labelled.

thanks rue, and who ever else made this program. good job.

Filterset.G - not "short" but doesn't have false-positives.

in order to get my adblock import list smaller in size, I removed all the .com, .net and replaced them with a single . (dot)

p.e.
*doubleclick.net* becomes *doubleclick.*
*maxserving.com*becomes *maxserving.*

can somebody follow up on this?

Might work - other "pros" on here could give more input.

I haven't tried "removing" .com or .net; I do group alphabetically groups of names to be filtered in brackets with just 1 ".com," as below:

/(265|addfreestats|adultfriendfinder|atdmt|ar\.atwola|bncnt|
blogsot|bravenetmedianetwork|budsinc|bullz-eye)\.com/

(all in one straight line; I broke it up so as not to widen the posting area on this forum, although it's already a mile wide).

I've altered my "set," some of which is from filterset G, and have a rather short list (especially compared to some) using these "groupings."

Apparently they do NOT speed things up since they don't contain the first starting letters, but they don't slow anything down either, and makes

"additions" or "appends" easier. I select properties, and if it's "ad-agency.com" it's added to that alphabetized string. 4-5 strings nail 'em all and allow for experimentation.

Dropping the "com" or "net" will result in false positives. Just because example.com serves ads doesn't mean that example.net isn't legitimate. The problem becomes far more apparent when dealing with other TLDs (Filterset.G blocks a number of .de and .nl domains).

I collect spamming domains in one filter string and the domain can end on .de, .com or .net.
I never had a false positive with that filter. I doubt that a domain i have listed is evil if ending on .com and good if ending on .net. In most cases the ad companies register their company name with every of the common TLD.

Right (I think) - grouping different ".com" or ".net" does shorten things up. I have a filter for ".de" with several elements I can append.

I was intrigued by the comments above regarding the "hun" website; I went there and got properties for 12 or so ad sites and made an extended filter, only to subsequently discover that Cell1527 naming "logging.to" made a brilliant suggestion; it blocked them all although only one listed "logging.to" in the properties (??!!).

I'm still learning . . . most of the ads blocked either by my specific "add-on string" or "logging.to" were BANNERS; I haven't found a multi dimension filter that works yet on that stuff, such as:

/\D(588|468|234|120|80|72)x(600?|468|120|90|80|72)\D/ (OR)

/\D(728|588|468|234|120)x(600?|90)\D/

While specific ".coms" are better, I'm amazed that something as simple as "logging.to" stopped all or most of 'em. Amazing.

Discovering stuff like that is what makes a whitelist less and less necessary.

A smart filterset is far more important than a whitelist feature.

(but a whitelist is still wanted Wink)

Zach and Paul, I can't agree with you more. And as a major proponent of the Ghastly Whitelist Hack, that counts for something!

When it comes down to it, I've only got 3 white filters. One is for RuneScape, which requires ad frames to be displayed, otherwise the main frame won't load. The other two are to handle Gmail and Google Images, where iframe and thumbnail names (respectively) are randomly generated and will sometimes generate false positives with my main "ad" regex.

Whitelisting also comes in handy if you end up with a site like EnvironmentalChemistry - if the site is useful and you are required to view ads to see the content, then you can add the whitelist filter instead of disabling and re-enabling Adblock. Or you come up with a more esoteric workaround!

Thanks bene . . . .
I visited your link - is the "hack" necessary? What do you actually install?
OR, do you just write a filter with "@@" to exempt what you want?

I tried to "PM" you on this, but "PM"-ing is not allowed on this board.

Hey Paul,

To whitelist once the Ghastly Whitelist Hack is installed, all you do is create a filter that starts with "@@". For example, in order to ensure that the Gmail iframes weren't caught by my blocking filters, I added:

@@http://gmail.google.com

Note that some advertising scripts act like stat counting scripts, and encode the referring URL into themselves, and whitelisting just "gmail.google.com" ended up whitelisting these scripts when I visited links from my email! The "://" gets encoded in the referring URL in the scripts, because they are not valid characters in CGI parameters.

Anyways, probably a bit too much detail. Hope you have fun with it!

/bene.

I think:

/[-/.?&_=](my)?banners?_?(id)?[-/.?&_=]/

is interesting!! - I've been wondering about a generic "banner" one that wouldn't give false positives.

I'll try it -- can't figure out what the (my) part is for - couldn't you use
/[-/.?&_=]?banners?_?(id)?[-/.?&_=]/

I'm happy to say my filter list is now 25% shorter asw well, and I'm not seeing "many" to speak of - man alive, I love AdBlock.

The time it takes to scan a page is so short that you won't notice a difference unless your computer is very old or the page has a truly massive number of objects.

More importantly, however, the more ads you're blocking, the less you're downloading, and the amount of time that takes is significant. In the long run, you're almost certainly losing more time by having fewer rules.

Why is everyone trying to specifically block doubleclick?
It always starts with the word ad and then a dot. You can use that instead.

doublclick is a well-known ad company, so most people block it. And if they change the subdomains, they will be still blocked.
My adblock blocks every ad company i find while surfing. And there is a filter for typical ad subdomains.
Just because the subdomain filter catches the ads i won't unblock the whole ad domain.

Blocking specifically doubleclick.net is very effective together with the Adblock option "Check Parent Link".

This probably has been asked befor but why doesn't adblock block everything with ad in its name automatic. Since filters acn be imported as well as exported why not put out a list of blockable items every few weeks you could easly ask user to submit there stuff to a database and deleat repeats. That way adblock could be a lot more compresencive.

Everyone is looking for the ultimate list. Unfortunately, that can't be done. If you screw around too much with script-coding and too much "generic wildcarding", you will find that problems will arise.

I have nothing against anyone's comments about the lists on these boards. Filter.G seems to be a fine effort. But what I HAVE realized is that some filtering tries to do too much (no offense, G). I've read about people's problems with various site images, search bars, and Java errors. I've checked all of the complaints as I've read the posts one-by-one, and found that my filter list does not have ANY ofthe problems that most of you complain about.

I've found that you should live with some smaller, local ads at the expense of not screwing other major things up!

So, if you are into playing with different filters, give this one a try and let me know what you think .... it is also MUCH smaller that any others and blocks a LOT!

Get it here ... try it (especially all you people with the problems):

p.s.: what do I have to do to get a verification email to become a member of this board? ..... 1 hour and still waiting .... rick752

Of course, there is no ultimate list for everyone because not everyone comes across the same ads. And i, as a german user, need some other filters than english users. You won't need these entries and you would most certainly never see these ads, unless you visit german sites.
But i think everyone can make his own filter set that approximates an ultimate list for his needs.
The filter sets posted here are a good start for an own list. G's filter set uses AFAIK a top-down-approach. It tries to block all kinds of ads and might score some false positives. Other approaches try to block guaranteed ads and misses some ads.

Your list would benefit from some regular expressions. The list would be much smaller. There are a lot of similar entried that can be combined into regex's.
And some of the *ABCDE*-entries will definitely lead to false positives. Most of these entries are subdomains and this should be considered in the filter.

You're forgetting something very important: Your list is tailored to your surfing habits. Creating your own list will always be the most effective approach if you know what you're doing, but most people don't want to do that. You don't have the problems that Filterset.G has because you're only blocking a very small fraction of what it does (I'm also guessing that you're only blocking ads in one language). The number of false positives is directly proportional to the number of blocked ads, and while it's easy to get rid of ~90% of them, the difficulty increases exponentially as you push closer to 100% (which is what my users want). Filterset.G is based on the surfing habits of thousands of people all over the world (pierceive.com has been visited by people in over 80 countries), and the number of false positives is extremely small when you consider what it's able to do for such diverse surfing habits. The introduction of whitelisting makes the few false positives easy to fix, so the problems are going to lessen with time.

I definitely admire your effort, G. Doing in multiple languages has got to be quite the chore. Your Filterset seems extremely popular at this point .. and I definitely applaude you "for free"efforts.

As far as my surfing habits go, though, I've gone to numerous "free" software, music, info, webmail, news and numerous other sites that I DON'T normally visit just for the sake of Adblock's filter (seems like the best places to visit).
I add, retract and adjust the filters to where I TRY not to have false positives while having them "take care of business". I also have 20 others working with me.

What I don't have is your fine-tuned scriting strings designed to capture php, cgi and other script-driven outputs. I admire them but also am cautious of them ... playing with scripting strings can have unwanted consequences.

Where your filter shines is probably in a more world-wide arena where mine filter is basically make for the U.S. market.

I also don't bother with XXX sites.

Definitely "thumbs" for your effort, G .... it's nice to help others, isn't it!

ps: Now what the hell do I have to do here to get a confirmation email for a normal login here .... 2 hours and counting ... says I'm the newest member. Can't log in...

Has anyone tried mapquest with adblock plus enabled? For me it's collapsing the map that's displayed at the bottom of the directions! Also, it doesn't allow me to log in to Yahoo! in the secure mode -- the whole screen blanks out! Anyone else faced this? Does anybody have a filter list that doesn't cause them this problem?

since this hasn't to do with the ultimate filterlist discussion i would open a thread.
I don't think that is an Adblock Plus issue, otherwise it would be better to ask for support for Adblock Plus in the corresponding forum.

To examine the problem:
- disable Adblock
- look at the properties of the item that was blocked, remember the URL
- enable Adblock
- look in the list of blockable items for the item that is now blocked
- change or delete the filter that matches the URL of the blocked item, so that is doesn't match anymore
- done
