    🔒 Consolidating and extending hosts files from several well-curated sources. Optionally pick extensions for porn, social media, and other categories.

    I've also seen suggestions for linux users to modify their hosts file, such as by using Steven Blacks file. Hosts is used to resolve particular addresses to <0.0.0.0>, for instance, instead of the actual address a DNS would provide, as I understand it, therefore blocking that particular domain.
