Can you please add the ability to auto-block these super annoying modals that people are putting in their sites? They're usually trying to get you to sign up for a newsletter... here is a perfect example:

Just like old school pop up windows, the average website owner stupidly turns on these annoying features thinking it's a good idea and that people will somehow actually put their address in there rather than find that fastest way to close the stupid thing,

Let's close them before we have to! Please, add in a modal blocker as soon as you can.

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for your suggestion! Most filter lists don't block these kinds of pop-ups because they're considered self-promotion (as opposed to third-party ads). Have you tried subscribing to the Fanboy's Annoyances list? That adds some additional filters that may help to block more of these.
