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.

Here are flash files that has been watched recently (only on eye.swfchan.com, .org isn't kept track of). The lists are constructed from statistics that are calculated on a running 168 hour cycle (7 days). A flash's position is updated every hour, when all gets for the previous hour has been counted.
A "get" is a single viewed/downloaded flash (a press on the GET FILE button). IP addresses can only generate a single get per flash per six hours (so viewing and then downloading the same flash only counts as one get, same with viewing the same flash many times in a short time). Gets generated from this "what's popular"-page are excluded from the lists so that top flashes are able to go down in view count (else those on top tend to stay on top forever). The only exception is if the flash is on the newcommer list, then gets via this popular page still counts in the lists.
The orange number on the left is how many gets the flash has had for the past 24 hours. The smaller number below it is the gets the flash has had in the last 168 hours. The system does not keep track of any flash's total number of gets since it first appeared on the site. It has been designed to only keep track of the flash files that are popular right now.
When calculating a flash's movement on a list its current position is compared to where it was on the list six hours ago. The newcommer and main lists are sorted by the number of gets in the last 24 hrs to allow for a faster response to changes in popularity. The bottom and climbing lists uses the full 168 hour scope (and doesn't bother to track movement on the list).
If a flash is marked as "new" it means that it wasn't on the list six hours ago (the flash might still be very old on the site). Depending on how many positions the flash has climbed on the list in the past six hours it will get more visible up arrows to make it easier to spot the up-and-coming. Those that stand still or decrease in position always get the same two markers.
The age number is simply how far away the flash's ID is from the most recent flash in the archive. So if the age number is 0 it is the latest archived flash on the site, if the age is 1 it is the second newest flash and so on.
There's a bit of history available as well: [PopTops]
NEWCOMMER LIST (100) - GETS OF THE NEWEST FLASHES IN THE ARCHIVE
Only the most recent flashes are allowed here, that's why some of them may have 0 gets.
MAIN LIST (333) - CURRENTLY MOST GOTTEN FLASHES OF ALL IN THE ARCHIVE
Most likely this list will be filled with flashes from the porn category and maybe a recent
BOTTOM LIST (250) - FLASHES GOTTEN ONCE
Random selection out of all flashes that has had only one get recently. There's a high chance that this list is more fun to look at since the top list will be populated by the same porn flashes most of the time, while if you're lucky you might discover gold in this bottom list. This list is scrambled every time this page updates (every 20 minutes or so).
CLIMBING LIST (120) - FLASHES GOTTEN AT LEAST TWICE
Random selection out of all flashes that has had two or a couple more gets recently. This list is scrambled every time this page updates (every 20 minutes or so).
In the past 24 hours there has been roughly 976 gets via this popular page that aren't counted in the lists above (to make it possible for the flashes on top to decrease in position).
