Code: Select all
ebay.de###rtm_html_1527

Removes the empty space and tightens up the layout a bit.

To make that rule I used the Element Hiding Helper

https://adblockplus.org/en/elemhidehelper

I'm guessing you are a German user, are you using the "EasyList Germany" subscription ? If not get it from

https://adblockplus.org/en/subscriptions


Once you have it you can report unblocked ads and empty space in the following German forum:

P.S. If you wait I'm pretty sure the rule will be added to EasyList Germany (if it is not taken care of already).

If you look through eBay (or old ebay related posts) you'll see precedent for "rtm_html_" rules.

I'm not really sure but I think those "rtm_html_" rules were risky some time ago. That's why the 2 present filters are so specific.

When Rick was maintaining EasyList I suggested quite a few ""rtm_html_" rules, some "rtm_html_" elements are / were used for legit purposes whereas others were used for ads. However after adding

Code: Select all
ebayrtm.com/rtm?r

Or similar, most of them became redundant.



Code: Select all
ebay.de##.vi-d-pad

Seems to achieve the same result but I like to select the outermost element when possible and I also remembered my numerous posts regarding eBay ads :wink:

At the end of the day the space is gone & someone learned of the EHH so I think we are all good :D
