Extension of _hosts completion function

I've created the issue out of the thread :+1:
How to add custom blocklist?
3 projects | /r/rethinkdns | 8 Feb 2023
I think the main source I use that doesn't seem to be in rethinkDNS is the Ultimate Hosts Blacklist's hosts and/or hosts.deny files.
Adblock from MX Linux

So it presumably has the same function as a hosts file. You can find examples like this which is portable to any Linux (or Windows) installation.

Goodbye chrome, hello Opera Gx, Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Brave!

Google has a secret deal with FB called “Jedi Blue” that they knew was illegal
2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 24 Oct 2021
that is way obsolete by now. you need to be using Brave with ublock origin, this dns service https://github.com/Ultimate-Hosts-Blacklist/Ultimate.Hosts.B... ClearURL's, HTTPS Everywhere, and Random User Agent. I also use whoogle for a local privacy enhancing filter of google data with all ad elements stripped out (and that is if I even use google I usually use ddg).
Is hosts.deny used to enhance security of servers only ?
3 projects | /r/linuxquestions | 23 Oct 2021
