Here I found adblock regex explanation. I wish to block all images containing "bbelements" in their url, but neither "bbelements" nor "*bbelements*" worked for me. Surely it must be something very trivial, but I can't figure it out. So how to hide images with bbelements in their url?

I don't think this user even exists anymore, but I still wanted to answer the Q.

Adblock outlines how it works in the FAQ here and then deep dives into code here.

Phew, I feel better now that this Q is A-ed.
