Just wondering, what would be the rules on banning entire sites like

I mean the entire thing is just one giant advertisement and tracker

Any chance adblock would ever just block out a site entirely??

    Hi all,

    Apologies for the super late reply! We're mostly volunteers or part-timers here at AdBlock support, and it just so happened that most of us were unavailable for the past few weeks.

    In the meantime, our developers have squashed a bunch of bugs and released a couple of updates. Please make sure that AdBlock is up-to-date (the current version is 2.15), and that you've installed all the latest updates for your browser.

    If you are still experiencing this issue after updating everything, please reply to this discussion and we'll get back to you as quickly as possible!

    Also, AdBlock, and similar extensions like Adblock Plus and uBlock, do not block the top-level request (URL bar, known internally as document), but you could make a few rules like

    ||^ (to block all Kotaku content requested from other sites or from pages, but not the content of pages themselves)

    *$ (to block all content requested from pages, but not the content of pages themselves)* (to hide all content on pages)
