Keyboard shortcut to block an ad on a page?

Did search KB but couldn't find any search result for "shortcut". Is there a keyboard shortcut to bring up the "remove ad" dialogue quickly without having to move the mouse on the adblock button, then clicking, then select "block ad" from the dropdown to make that dialogue and mouse selection to select the ad to be blocked visible?

    Thanks for your suggestion!

    There isn't a keyboard shortcut available just yet, but you can always use
    the right-click (Ctrl+Click on a Mac) -> AdBlock -> Block this ad or if you
    are using Chrome you can set up a keyboard shortcut to open the AdBlock
    menu as well.

    If you have any knowledge of making Chrome extensions in HTML, CSS and
    JavaScript, then feel free to send us a patch of the code at (licensed under the GPLv3) as an attachment!

    Sorry, my coding skills are NIL.

    But add my vote to any existing ticket for this feature. IRCC in firefox adblock plus uses SHIFT + CMD + K on OSX.

    Shouldn't be too difficult though. Good luck and hope this can be implemented one day (:
