hi,

I know there are certain blockers which offer a convenient set it and forget it option, whereas other are more granular. I have tried Crystal, Firefox Focus, and Adguard on iOS, and the usual suspects for OSX.

When I look at Adguard or uBlock, I am presented with a list of filters to choose from. Unfortunately, I don't have a yardstick to know which filters are 'essential'.

So, I ask for my own edification, which filters should I consider and why? Fanboy, Easy, something else?

Thanks!
