Can also block legitimate images!

This technique is a bit draconian -- for instance, the page at or a typical page at PriceGrabber strips out the logos, which is the only way to identify the companies! My suggestion is to take out the part of the file that identifies images soley by size.

LaShampoo's ad blocking css is based on my original ad blockng css which you can find at

If you use mine, you will see a LOT fewer legitimate images being blocked. All those of you who tried it and had trouble should try the simpler userContent.css at the address above. I tried several of the problem sites listed in this thread and had no trouble with my userContent.css.

It would have been nice if LaShampoo had a comment in his css saying it was based on mine - then maybe those of you who had problems could have found some relief. I requested that he do this, but for reasons I don't understand he refuses.
