Originally there was no banning.ca entry.
127.0.0.1 points simply to localhost
My actual server name is 3s1.com, which points to 126.96.36.199
(my static IP) in /etc/hosts
You are right about host.conf, but it is almost empty;
root# cat /etc/host.conf
# $FreeBSD: src/etc/host.conf,v 1.6 1999/08/27 23:23:41 peter Exp $
# First try the /etc/hosts file
# Now try the nameserver next.
# If you have YP/NIS configured, uncomment the next line
