	I am in the process of reorganizing the code for the CSS ad blocker. When I am finished, there will be 3 files. One will have all of the code additions that have been made over the last few months and it will be optimized for Safari v2 (meaning it will use display: none, block, inline, etc). The second file will have all of the same code additions and it will be optimized for Safari v3 (meaning it will use visibility: hidden, visible exclusively). The third file will be a lot smaller than the other 2. It will only go after truly annoying ads and ones that are easily identified. After all, we can't catch everything, that would be a full-time job, and I am putting this out there for free.If you are interested in extending the Ad Blocker on your own, all I ask is that you leave a reference to ALL of the source sites used when publishing your file. In fact, I may post the code under a Creative Commons License to help encourage that openness.
