Blocked Hosts

I am blocking Facebook, Outbrain and Taboola on my computer and you can too.

If you're running a Unix operating system (Ubuntu, MacOS, GNU/Linux), put the contents of hosts in your /etc/hosts file.

# First copy any lines you want onto your clipboard, then:
$ sudo sh -c 'pbpaste >> /etc/hosts'

# Or use a command-line editor:
$ sudo vi /etc/hosts

Now when I browse sites that attempt to load data from these sites, the requests will fail, keeping with my desire to avoid them as well as saving bandwidth and energy.

Browsing meetup.com with these settings causes Facebook's fbevents.js and sdk.js to not load.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
