Block Likes/Dislikes Count on YouTube (Repost)

Sorry I was having issues with my last thread.

Hi. I use Adblock for blocking both ads and "non-ads" alike. However, I have an issue blocking one of these "non-ads".
Under every YouTube video, there are "like"/"thumbs-up" and "dislike"/"thumbs-down" buttons with "like"/"thumbs-up" and "dislike"/"thumbs-down" counts next to their respective buttons.
I have a bad tendency of either liking or disliking the video depending on the like/dislike count(not necessarily because I actually like/dislike a video). This is why want to block the like/dislike count.
When I try to block the like/dislike counts, under blocked element it says:


However, when I block this, Adblock blocks ALL of the button content on the page instead of just the like/dislike count. I attached screenshots so you can see what I mean.

In the next update, can you make it so that only the like/dislike counts next to the like/dislike buttons are blocked instead of all the button content?
Sorry if I confused you(or anyone else for that matter).
