Regex Option for Advanced Users

FlashMall is a nasty site and AdBlock at times does miss them due to the changing HTML tags they randomly generate. That said it has a pattern. I would love to see a regex option for advanced users.

    Hi Jon,

    FlashMall ads are caused by malware, so we recommend following the instructions on The Safe Mac's Adware Removal Guide, running an antivirus/antimalware scan, and removing any browser extensions you don't remember installing.

    You can also find further instructions in our Knowledge Base.

    Also, I believe AdBlock does support regex-based blocking filters, although this would be of little use for hiding randomly generated HTML elements (regexes are not supported in hiding filters).
