A well-known blogger is being completely blocked by Privoxy because of her name: Adina Kutnicki. Her domain is adinakutnicki.com/. Since her blog is hosted on Wordpress, another domain is also involved -- her image hosting server at adinakutnicki.files.wordpress.com/. So here is one more example of a major problem caused by the ad*/ blocking criterion.

    Thanks for the report.

    While I don't consider this a major problem, I agree that requests
    to domains starting with adina shouldn't be blocked as ad requests
    and thus I added "adina*." to the -block section.
