While looking through the customization options for AdBlock, I found this and I do not know what it is, nor am I able to delete it. Could you please explain it to me?

Show ads on a webpage or domain
The domain or url where AdBlock shouldn't block anything$document
Show ads everywhere except for these domains...

    Hi nctipton,

    That's a custom "whitelist" filter that tells AdBlock to allow ads on that site. This whitelist isn't actually applied to your web pages right now. "" is simply example text tht's immediately replaced if you start typing over it.

    Thanks. I don't think I want ads allowed from any site unless I'm the one controlling my preferences!! I appreciate your explanation!!
