Hiding the new GMail ads

For some reason, Adblock for Chrome is not yet blocking the new pink GMail text ads at the bottom of the message view. Below is a manual filter that can be used to block them:

mail.google.com##div.MI

[I changed it... thanks to the commenter Roberto... my original string stopped working this morning]

You will need to edit the filter list in the Adblock options.

You may need to restart your browser for it to take effect.

mail.google.com##div[class="MI"] -- This worked for me, but it also removed the other ads (top bar and side bar).

I haven't tested it to know how it affects other websites.

the mail.google.com before the double pound should restrict the filter to Gmail!
