I have tried several ‘filter’ commands from the Adblock Plus’ documentation, but have had no luck so far.
You don't have to write the filters yourself -- using the "Disable on [website]" option creates an exception filter and applies it.
But if you're curious and really want to write your own filters (you don't have to!), this filter should whitelist MakeUseOf.com:
Also, thanks a lot for whitelisting us! No one likes advertisements, but they make websites like this one possible and help us writers pay the bills.
First go to makeuseof.com
There is a adblock plus icon on the bottom left corner of your browser click on it
When the list pops up
click on "Disable on makeuseof.com"
Check this picture you will know
No need of filters.
Click on Adblock plus icon, and select "disable on makeuseof".
