Sorry about the delay. I wasn't available for a few months.

Thanks for the feedback. Very well done, ProxoDent!
I've created a hotmail account today and could verify everything (minus one) thanks to the excellent bug descriptions.

when 'adkey_j' works as well. I'd generally like to use the method that applies the most restrictive filtering while still allowing things to work, but in this case I couldn't easily make up my mind. Any thoughts?

Yep, in this case "a_adscr" is the better choice, because it is targeting at a single filter, whereas "adkey_j:0" is affecting subroutines in many filters.

Code:
~adsToFire$TST(uDom=live.com|hotmail.com)&$TST(uPath=/mail/*)
~adsMinActions$TST(uDom=live.com|hotmail.com)&$TST(uPath=/mail/*)
~ads$TST(uHost=gfx[0-9].hotmail.com)&$TST(uPath=/mail/*)

I do not see that this method gets used much (if at all), but it seems to narrow the culprits down nicely without having to broadly bypass the entire AdKeys-J.ptxt file. Any thoughts here as well?

I handle it like that:
- Never alter (or add) an entry in general ad lists just because of a single page (i.e.: avoid overhead).
- If a specific match (like adsToFire) needs to be excluded, b/c it is breaking multiple pages, directly alter the expression (e.g. ads(^ToFire)). This usually keeps the respective entry hashable ("ads" not being a good example here). "except" notations are never hashable.


Here is the entire updated Microsoft section. Also needed to keep MS translator working which was broken due to a new (sneaky) referrer check.
