'.edu' will not match host with country code, eg. '.kfupm.edu.sa'
but '.edu.' will. similarly '.gov.'

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Do you have a specific URL in mind where the proposed change improves things?

    Those generous filter exceptions are left over from a time where Privoxy's default configuration was a lot more aggressive and the filters could cause even more breakage than they do today.

    Unless there's an actual problem, I don't see the point of making more exceptions.
