How do I add a filter exception?

I've noticed that on, the "EasyList" filter hides certain elements that are actually useful, such as removing the hyperlinks to the uploader name and for adding a comment. Could you write me an exception line that I can add to the "Manually edit your filters" section of Adblock that specifically disables the EasyList filter ONLY on domain? Also, if it's not too much to ask, could you write another line that applies the "EasyList without element hiding rules" ( filter ONLY to Thanks in advance :)
P.S.: I don't want to simply whitelist, because than I would still see ads on it. I would rather, SOLELY for domain, replace the "EasyList" filter (which works great on all other sites) with the "EasyList without element hiding rules" (which blocks ads on AND does not remove useful functionality, but is somewhat lacking on all other sites).

    If you enable Advanced options in AdBlock button -> Options -> GENERAL a new option shows in the AdBlock menu: "Show the resource list". You can use this page to disable a specific filter.

    You can just hit the checkbox next to the URL of the file you want to unblock, and it will be unblocked.

    You can also contact EasyList at so that this gets fixed for everyone!

    Let s know how it goes!

    The 'Show the resource list' is located in the pop-up menu of the AdBlock Icon. (Click on the AdBlock icon to see this pop-up menu)
