I don't think it should be default, many sites use a different subdomain for their ads and currently the third option (http://ads.example.com/*
) is what you want to block then and not the whole site (||example.com/*).
In that situation I only see gain in ||ads.example.com/*
Hopefully you agree?

There's one disadvantage I can think of if this is implemented by default, some filters might become too short to be optimized if you remove http://
with this flexible anchor.
Solution would perhaps be:
1) suggest flexible anchor by default
2) revert back from flexible anchor if 1)
3) suggest flexible anchor again if 2)
The filter composer would need to do a few extra calculations, but I think it would be worth it.
