Exception rules can disable existing rules on particular domains. These are mostly useful to filter subscription authors who are extending another filter subscription that they cannot change. For example, the rule ##.textad can be disabled on using the exception rule #@#.textad . The combination of these two rules has exactly the same effect as the single rule ~##.textad . It is recommended that you use exception rules only when you cannot change an overly general element hiding rule, in all the other cases limiting this rule to the necessary domains is preferable. These exceptions will be applied to advanced pseudo-selector rules as well.
Revision in the second draft, “one of them, anyway,” may “necessitate some big changes” says King in his 2000 memoir slash writing guide On Writing . And yet, it is an essential process, and one that “hardly ever fails.” Below, we bring you King’s top twenty rules from On Writing . About half of these relate directly to revision. The other half cover the intangibles---attitude, discipline, work habits. A number of these suggestions reliably pop up in every writer’s guide. But quite a few of them were born of Stephen King’s many decades of trial and error and---writes the Barnes & Noble book blog---“over 350 million copies” sold, “like them or loathe them."
