Details:

These lists were created because the founder of the project wanted something with a little more control over what is being blocked. Many lists are all or nothing. We set out to create lists with more control over what is being blocked.

 

Versions:

Original Version:

 All urls in the version of the list are listed in the host file as follows

  0.0.0.0 example.com

 
No Leading 0s Version:

 All urls in this version of the list are listed in the host file as follows

  example.com

Our users brought it to our attention that some devices error out if the url is preceded by an IP address.

 
DNSMASQ Version:

 All urls in this version of the list are listed in the host file as follows

  server=/example.com/

It was requested to add support for dnsmasq. Please provide feedback.

 
Adguard Version:

 All urls in this version of the list are listed in the host file as follows

  ||example.com^

It was requested to add support for AdGuard. We are currently testing our lists. Please provide feedback.
