Since it's exceptionally easy to only block the actual ads on swfchan (no ads are actually served from swfchan's own domain) and because the current ruleset is actually causing visitors to see more ads I thought this matter would be quickly resolved. However, I have been trying to contact EasyList for over three weeks now with no response. Therefore I feel the need to ask my visitors to e-mail them as well to bring attention to this issue and show that regular users of EasyList care about swfchan, not just the guy running the site.
They have two e-mails: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. The first one is the primary mail but I've sent mail to both and received a reply from neither. Have sent using different mail accounts as well so I know there was no sending issues on my end. I should have written this announcement earlier but this whole thing felt like such an open-and-shut case that I would never have imagined swfchan still being blocked like this after three weeks. Big thanks to anyone helping out!
Note: I'm not writing this because of money, the site's income is actually the same as before (less visitors but less blockers equal same ad views). I am however worried that in the long run, in a year or so, this may lead to less links leading to swfchan which would sure enough finally kill it off the web, especially with the dwindling flash support these days. I also don't think this is a fair practice by EasyList, there's no reason what-so-ever to block swfchan itself. I don't serve ads and an adblocker should block ad providers, not sites that use ad providers. I also don't limit anyone blocking ads from using the site in any way. It feels like the EasyList authors took just a minute to look at swfchan, said "fuck it" and proceeded to block the whole thing instead of only the ads.
So if you have a moment I'd really appreciate it if you took the time to e-mail them about this. Just be polite and ask EasyList to block only the ads on swfchan, not the actual content on swfchan itself. There's a discussion thread over here.

Introduction (scroll down for the actual categories) or click here
When watching a flash file you can put it into (or exclude it from) different categories by using the categorize-link below the flash. The flash is then put into the category index, viewable here.
All flashes in the index has been categorized by Anonymous users, therefore a flash can sometimes be in the wrong category. If you see a flash in a category where it does not belong you can remove it from that category by watching it and clicking the little "x" next to the category name to tell the system that it does not belong in that category. Similary if it SHOULD belong in a category that someone has excluded it from you can instead put it in there by clicking the category name.
Sometimes a flash might not be included/excluded from a category after you have categorized it, this is because a lot of people has already excluded/included it and you are being outnumbered in the decision. If two people say yes and one say no to a flash being in a category it will still count as belonging to that category, however if one more says no after that it will then be removed from the category.
IP numbers that often categorize flash files will become more trusted and therefore have a bigger vote when saying yes/no to a category. This is to make it more bothersome using proxies when categorizing (to prevent abuse). A cookie is used to recognize those with dynamic IP addresses, as long as you don't obtain a new IP and delete the cookie at the same time the system will still know it's you when you are categorizing.
By using the selector you can filter the index to show a list of flash files that only exist (or doesn't exist) in the categories you pick out. Subindexes for the selected categories will be downloaded and processed locally by your machine to produce the list you want.
(The selector is not build yet. I'll make this later.) Some sunny day, right?
Predefined category lists
Flash files in these lists can belong to several different categories, the only thing that's sure about them is that they do belong to the category that the list is listing. Most lists here are ordered so that the most recent flash that was put into the category is at the bottom (of the last page).
Only the emotional subcategories are ordered different, there the flashes are ordered in a descenting manner with the flash that has had the most categorizations into the selected listing being at the top (in simpler terms most popular to less popular).
The five main categories:
Recently categorized flashes
These flash files are the latest to have their category status updated (refreshed by the system every ~8 hours). They are ordered so that the most recent categorization is at the top. If you see any that have been put in incorrect categories feel free to correct the mistakes. Underlined categories are the ones that the flash has recently been put into or excluded from (if all should have been underlined none will be in order to make things easier to read, though rarely it could also mean that a categorization was made by someone but it has been outnumbered by others and is therefore not showing). If a categorization has a extra wide right border it was made by someone new (whose IP made its first categorization less than three days ago).
