    When I block sites, and it works all the time every time is to do a facebook$. Adding the $ will block every site with facebook in the URL no matter what.

    As a test I changed my "facebook" entry to "facebook$" and it stopped working so I went back to just plain "facebook" which works (in all cases just the text between the quotes, do not include the quotes).

    I like what Russell said about "The trouble with the world". :)

    The $ is a special character. From the Tomato FAQ....

    So probably "facebook" blocked http://www.facebook.com but "facebook$" did not since the URL didn't end with "facebook". That's what I was thinking had happened and the above would seem to confirm it.

    OOPS!!! In my post that I said facebook$ works I meant to have it look like facebook.com$. My bad.... Sorry for the confusion

    I doubt he meant that. Get it? ;-) Hah, I amuse myself, if nobody else.

    Not adding the $ will block every site with facebook in the URL no matter what.

    Would be a more accurate statement, no?

    I do get it, but I'm sure he mean't self-doubt. :) :)

    (I've also noticed that better writers use dictionaries.)

    Of course you're right. I've seen what the saying describes in action unfortnately.
    What are you implying? Or am I inferring it?

    Eschew obfuscation. See I know big words, even without a dictionary. :-D

    Just trying to keep my sense of humor.
