It would be a nice feature, to implement an access log.
Simply write all accessed objects to some text file. It
could be enabled/disabled somewhere in config files.

Example of access.log:

GET / HTTP/1.1
GET http://www.something.info/news.jpg HTTP/1.0
-BLOCKED- http://www.something.info/ad.gif HTTP/1.0
-BLOCKED- http://www.something.info/banner.jpg HTTP/1.0
POST http://www.sf.net/index.php HTTP/1.1
GET http://www.something.info/a.js HTTP/1.0

Nice work BTW!

    I'll add this feature to my TODO.

    Leaving the request open until the feature is implemented.

    The new version of BFilter is going to be released soon, and I am
    considering whether (and how) to implement this feature.
    First question: do you still need it? If so, what is the purpose of this log?
    Is it a security thing or you just want to compile a list of detected ads or is
    it something else? Depending on the purpose of the log, I might implement
    it using syslog() or maybe just make it available in the GUI without writing
    in anywhere.
