The most infuriating? They (the @nytimes) do the same when you're a paying subscriber. How is that okay?! Dear NYT, the reason I'm giving you money is simple: so you don't need to a) show me ads and b) sell my data to finance your journalism. Please get it together!
I think @BristolLive puts the big newspapers to shame with selling out user data.
Should you lazily dismiss the cookie consent banner, it flings your usage data at 298 third-party vendors (plus Google). 295 requests. 10 seconds to load. More ads than content.
It’s just blocking DNS that is associated to ads, trackers, and malicious domains. You could accomplish the same by editing your host file for a device, but this will work for any device that uses it for DNS. It won’t slow you down, it’s not in the middle of every connection
Which endpoint? Pi-Hole returns a fake address, it doesn’t just drop the entire request. It will still “resolve”. I’d agree it’s possible for some things to become broken, because they may depend on having a certain domain available and responding correctly at all times.
