Not sure if that's the best way to describe it, but digitaltrends' ads are loud and clear.

Coming from http://hk.digitaltrends.com/max/adclick.php

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. visit news.digitaltrends
2. be annoyed by ads
3.
Actual Results:  
saw an ad.

Expected Results:  
Preferably, camino should have blocked it.

It seems difficult to get to the page that describes how to augment Camino's ad-blocking abilities; it isn't linked or listed in the FAQ but I've seen it before...

The only thing I see there with 1.6 and ad-blocking turned on is (sometimes) an ad for speakers, in one of three places (banner, in article, or in sidebar) coming from, variously:

http://hk.digitaltrends.com/max/www/images/orb728_2.gif
http://hk.digitaltrends.com/max/www/images/orb336x280.gif
http://hk.digitaltrends.com/max/www/images/orb-160x600b.gif

Problem is, a lot of legitimate content on that site is *also* coming from

http://hk.digitaltrends.com/max/www/

I'm not sure what to do here. Smokey?
I looked at this a couple of times and never could see any unblocked ads.  I don't see any way to block those ads based on URL, anyway; let's mark this WFM, but if you see more ads from the site, feel free to reopen.  (In that case, attaching the page source or generated source https://www.squarefree.com/bookmarklets/webdevel.html#generated_source would be very useful).
