Ublock origin filters (unimelb/mathoverflow/stackexchange)

Motivated by recent changes to the mathoverflow cookie popup spam, I recently learned something about Ublock origin filters. In particular, a URL X matches *X. Now my custom filters file contains the lines\\\:d-none

So the first line above matches every website, independent of the prefix before unimelb. While the last three match every website, so I can use this set of three filters not just on mathoverflow, but on every site in the stackexchange network.
