it seems like $generichide is acting like $elemhide (I can not create any hiding filter to hide the space at the top - under the title)

Replying to fanboy:

Could you explain in some more detail what you see? When I open blockable items I can only see one element hiding filter from Social Blocking active: This is in fact a specific filter, applying specifically to the Daily Mail website. Are you seeing something different? Are you expecting something different?
