Should I be using these custom filters? Or is it unnecessary?

Hello,

So I have the following filters enabled:
AdBlock customer filters
EasyList
EasyPrivacy

I've also added the following custom filter lists:

Anti-AdBlock Killer
https://raw.github.com/reek/anti-adblock-killer/master/anti-adblock-killer-filters.txt
(which successfully eliminated the annoying pop up dialog box's I was getting via Putlocker and Sockshare)

EasyList's Malwaredomains from DNS-BH Malware Domain Blocklist
https://easylist-downloads.adblockplus.org/malwaredomains_full.txt
(although I'm not sure if this list is already covered in AdBlock's custom list or EasyList)

Are the two custom filter lists above okay to keep or are they unnecessary to have?

Appreciate any feedback from the AdBlock staff on this.

Thank you.

    It's up to you - it depends whether you want the features the filters
    provide or not.

    Thanks, I removed the Anti-AdBlock Killer as I saw that the filter list had become ineffective with Putlocker and Sockshare. Once I removed that and updated EasyList, I was no longer having any problems with those video hosting services and read that they had on another forum that they had closed that Putlocker loophole.

    Thanks for the reply though.
