How to filter an address that ends with a slash?

Hello,
I've been trying out your software and can't seem to figure out a way to exclude the following addresses from downloading: http://www.someplace.com/file/folder/rateing/ OR http://www.someplace.com/file2/folder2/forum/.
I've read the help files and tried excluding the following in Directory and Filename URL filters:
rating
/rating/
*rating*
*/rating/
/rating
http://*rating/
http://*rating*/
and tons of other various "word play", and same goes to the other address containing the word forum.
I read the tip that says:
"Tip: To filter URLs that end with a slash (no filename specified), use default.htm in URL Filters | Filename section."
and I tried it as well but everything I tried failed to work when I was doing the URL exclusion "Test" (I made sure I hit apply every time before running the test).

Is there no way to do this?

Any help on this subject is much appreciated.
Thank you in advance!

P.S. I have other addresses like the above situation that I would like to download - OE downloads a "default.htm" which is what I want.

Found it! I feel silly...
I forgot to changed the "Location" (under file filters -- > text) to "Load using URL filters settings"

You only need to use URL Filters - Directory - Excluded list:

/rating/
/forum/

This should be enough. Please also make sure that File Filters categories have the "URL Filters settings" in their Location boxes.
