If you run a Squid proxy, there's another way to achieve
similar results (without 404 messages).  Put these lines
in your sqid conf:

acl banned_doms url_regex -i "/usr/local/etc/squid/banned_doms.txt"
acl banned_urls dstdomain "/usr/local/etc/squid/banned_urls.txt"
http_access deny banned_doms
http_access deny banned_urls
deny_info ERR_BANNED banned_doms
deny_info ERR_BANNED banned_doms

The file banned_doms.txt contains one domains per line,
for example:

The dot prefix means to include the domain _and_ all
names under that domain, e.g. "" includes itself as well as,
and so on.  This "dstdomain" matching is very efficient;
in the squid ML someone reported having 600,000 entries
in his file of banned domains.

The file banned_urls.txt contains extended regular
expressions (one per line) that are matched against the
full URL of the request, for example:


Finally, the file errors/$LANG/ERR_BANNED contains
something like this:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">
<HTML><HEAD><META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<STYLE type="text/css"><!--BODY{background-color:#ffffff;font-family:verdana,sans-serif}PRE{font-family:sans-serif}--></STYLE>
</HEAD><BODY><p><em><font size="-1">(Ad blocked)</font></em></p></BODY>

Thus you will only get a small text "(Ad blocked)" in place
of the ads.  If you don't even want that, remove the text
between "<BODY>" and "</BODY>" completely.  The "<!--" line
is important because it prevents Squid's signature from
being displayed.
