Blocking Ads in NetNewsWire Feeds

Being a profoundly geeky, I’ve been using NetNewsWire to do my regular browsing around the internet. Recently, ads have started popping up in the newsfeeds, and today I took action against them. Borrowing heavily from an idea of using a custom stylesheet in Safari to block ads, I added this to Jon Hicks’ tiger-style stylesheet for NetNewsWire:


a:link[href*="/imageads."] img, 
a:link[href*="http://www.google.com/ads_by_google.html"]
    { display:none !important; }

Bye bye ads!
