Google Analytics Exclude Cookie does not appear to be working

I've tried to exclude visits from my own website in Google Analytics, but it appears not to be working.  Please advise.  I'll embed the contents of my exclude cookie, and screenshots of my Google Analytics filter settings and the traffic report about visits from my website.

If you don't mind being invisible to Google Analytics for ALL websites, not just yours, consider this plugin:
https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
or consider adding a hosts file entry:

The reason that your approach is not working is because of a race condition.  
<body onload="javascript:__utmSetVar('no_report')">

That code is not executed until everything else is fully loaded, including the Google Analytics.  So because you are running that code LAST it is useless.

Consider something more like this:
  var BockMe=0;

  if(1==1) BockMe=1; // If you want this to be blocked BockMe=1;
  
  var _gaq = _gaq || [];
  if(BockMe!=1) {
   _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-XXXXX-Y']);
   _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']);
   (function() {
    var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true;
    ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ? 'https://ssl' : 'http://www') + '.google-analytics.com/ga.js';
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
   })();
  }

Thank you.  I'll refer to this answer if the problem persists, but I think it has been resolved.  Some time ago,  I needed to delete all the cookies on my desktop, and I didn't realize that I needed to visit the exclusion cookie web page on my server in order to "reset" the exclusion.  Having revisited that page, there are no further visits reported in Analytics.
