Re: Thank you browser add-ons

yes, i do concede hostsman can occasionally block something commercial you may want - here is a case in point; last summer i started playing a new mmo from a new publisher who freely admitted in their FAQ they were accumulating data for marketing research and university study programs, so naturally hostsman blocked one or both of these entities which in turn disabled part of the game launcher, so in order to play i had to disable hostsman. about 2 months later their blacklists were updated to allow this game to run unfettered. so desirable content may rarely get blocked, but eventually it does seems to sort itself out - and i have since returned to using hostsman without further incident.
