Hi Fabian,

A couple of domains I use (and no doubt many similar others) fall foul of the ad. blocker. They are http://adkhighpeaksforheroes.com/ and http://adkhighpeaks.com/. Obviously I've added an unblocker for adk. to my user.action, but I fear that that might be too generic to commit for default.action. What's your take?

Cheers,

Ian

    I think "ad*." itself is probably too generic, but given that there are no test URLs it's hard to tell.

    It probably wouldn't hurt to check logs to see if it can't be refined, but that's a lot of work and in the meantime unblocking "adk" is fine by me. We already unblock "ad[udmw]." ...
