|The Full Filter List Blues|
What do you do when you reach 200?

OK. It took me a while to get there, but I'm there now. So, I must ask, what does one do when one reaches 200 entries in their filter list?
I've taken now to removing listings here and there a few at a time, weighing would I rather have an ad from The United Way (which is off topic for me) or that new "Free Movie Download" ad?
When you've gotten down to a list 200 with "best 5", "best 8", "free", and "ring tone" in the urls, then what do you do?

Open the filter and paste the urls in a seperate window one at a time and see if they are still active.
As you do that only leave the totally offensive or blatant MFAs.
Now you just want to have room the totally bad guys left, Shades of Grey.
Instead of "do no harm" it's "do least harm".

At that point I like to empty the filter of everyone except ebay and shopping com, and start again. Quite a lot will have given up and gone home. Others will now be targeting their ads better.

I find that most do MFA's not give up, at all. If anything they expand their collection of domain names and websites to circumvent our blocking efforts.

I'm earning more ever since I stopped trying to block - filter is empty. On my most lucrative site I see more legit AdWords advertisers and much less garbage ads - looks like they're priced out. On my low earning sites, I see less legit advertisers and more junk (for some reason, I've found blocking using the filter does not seem to create more legit advertisers).
