Self Hosted Ad Blockers?
6 projects | reddit.com/r/selfhosted | 14 Jan 2022
Depending on what you're trying to accomplish, you can also load the blocklists directly onto your hosts. For example, hblock (https://github.com/hectorm/hblock) has a few scripts to format its blocklist for your platform. The StevenBlack list's github page has instructions for adding to a range of platforms and links to several hosts/blocklist managers (https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts). You can also point your router at an adblocking public DNS such as https://adguard-dns.com/en/public-dns.html (free) or https://nextdns.io/ (might cost). Lastly, depending on what router you run, you could load the host lists directly onto the router.
Cutting specific pieces from a text file
1 project | reddit.com/r/bash | 12 Jan 2022
I made a small script to keep my hosts file more or less up to date with respect to this one in github, the problem I have is that it also block a couple of pages I don't want to block (e.g. Reddit) and I don't want to be deleting them from the list by hand every time it updates.

Like u/adrian_mxlinux mentioned, adding the addresses you want to block in etc/hosts is the easiest way. Learn more about etc/hosts here
Adding the Avoid list to hosts file
1 project | reddit.com/r/Monero | 8 Jan 2022
Incidentally I took the bulk of my hosts file from Steven Black's compilations here: https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts, as suggested by Mental Outlaw here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KA6A3oeocHY

Alternatively, you can also disable trackers on hosting level, which will work in every browser, though a little bit more complex to setup. See: https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts Some people even configure a 'Pi Hole' to have all the wifi-traffic ad-free, though I couldn't manage to set this up with my Telenet router.
Ask HN: How do you avoid dopamine addiction on social media?
1 project | news.ycombinator.com | 2 Jan 2022
I have a pihole with everything blocked, and I (probably somewhat redundantly) use a hosts blocker (https://github.com/StevenBlack/hosts) on my non-phone machines. It's annoying for the first day or two, but you get used to it really quickly.
Uncanny coincidence: This old anti-vaxx cowboy with 1.9K Facebook friends died of COVID-19 and his funeral looked EXACTLY like this cartoon he shared.

Hide a pihole on their network (can be on wifi) and set it as their local DNS server. Add the usual ad and malware blocking lists but also be sure to include one of Steven Black's lists. The one that blocks "fakenews + gambling + social" would be good. Kills everything from the wild & crazy fake news sites through to just-plain-crazy fox news, kills facebook and other social media. They'll go through withdrawal of course but after a good period of detox maybe they'll find some balance?

1 project | reddit.com/r/pihole | 21 Feb 2021
I got mine from here: https://github.com/chadmayfield/my-pihole-blocklists sorry if not allowed to post links. This list seemed to match some sites I know about and others that I wouldn't want the kids to find really.
