It'd be ok if the default setting was set to disabled, but please don't remove it completely.
That is a very interesting statement. I guess I just don't understand it.
Please excuse me if I seem a little bit questionable in my following statement (I really am not trying to be annoying to you) .. but:
How can you use the "check links" mode to block something that you do not already have in your list? Does "regularsite.com" serve 1st-party images that link to Doubleclick's site? The answer is, "Yes it does" ... but this is exactly where all of the false-positives show up.
Most websites' blacklisted strings are 'fed' from 3rd-party ad companies (exceptions above) ... not the other way around! I don't see 1st-party images with links pointing to visit Doubleclick (again, exceptions above) .... what I always see is Doubleclick being hosted by a site and serving ad images pointing to other regular sites.
Am I missing something? (seriously)
