Sure, that's what I want as well :-)  I'm using a huge /etc/hosts as
well, but only with so all requests from unwanted domains get
send to nowhere without my system (localhost) trying to serve them

The purpose of using in /etc/hosts, AIUI, is to make the web
server on localhost show some substitute page/image/whatever to
indicate something has been blocked.  If you don't have a web server
running on localhost and configured to serve such requests it doesn't
make sense to put in /etc/hosts to my understanding.


Kind regards,
