Try blocking adfarm.mediaplex.com - you are probably running into many multiple affiliates which is why the complete string didn't seem to work, or they are using slightly different URL strings. However, I am not sure if any non-eBay affiliate programs use adfarm.mediaplex.com as well - if they do, you will be blocking them as well.
This is standard URL address format for any website. Subdomain names precede the main URL address. So if you want to block content and filtering the subdomain doesn't work, use the main URL address. Google has told me sometimes just [xyz.com] is sufficient. If that doesn't filter it, then you have to enter [www.xyz.com]
