When did this become a rule?

No discussion of ad blocking software - Websites cost money to run and blocking ads is no more than theft of service, if you dont like a sites ads then dont use the site.

I don't know; but I can certainly understand the reasoning.

From the "Edit" it seems it was implemented 3 weeks ago, I agree with the rule as well.

What exactly does this mean?

# localhost name resolution is handle within DNS itself.
# 127.0.0.1 localhost
# ::1 localhost



is handle?
Or handled?

How do I block sites with the DNS?

Without removing the "#" I have listening UDP ports on all my connections leading to "0www.wixawin.com", the first blocked site in my hosts file.

So without removing the "#" I'm screwing myself.

So how do I block sites via "localhost name resolution is handle within DNS itself."

Whatever that means.
