Re: Blocking Specific Websites
Is it possible to block the zapping of
ads on some selected websites without
having squid bypass them?

Certainly - see the Customisation Section of the web page.
But please report these to me at cs@zip.com.au as well so that I can fix these misclassifications.

What you do is: fetch the wrapzap script from the web page and set the $ZAP_PREMATCH variable to a list of site exceptions. Install as per directions.
You want PASS lines like this:

The Invision board forum software has a smilie that is identified as an ad, and there are other sites where the ad's arn't too bad (Penny Arcade for example).
