I propose adding an option to allow banning some domains.

add `--ban-hosts' which accepts a file name which contains a list of
domains to block, one per line.
Domains are blocked by simply returning NXDOMAIN.

is the following in dnsmasq.conf broken???

# block these domains with NXDOMAIN
server=/example.com/
server=/facebook.com/
server=/fbcdn.net/
server=/fbcdn.com/
server=/facebook.net/

Nope, but it's unpractical when the ban list is huge

impractical?

# wc -l /etc/banhosts
13090 /etc/banhosts

also, having it in a separate file will allow updating it without
messing with the configuration file


well, you asked for comments so i did... as for separate files, can't it be done in another file that is included in the main one? i can't remember if dnsmasq allows one to include additional files or not...

eg: include bannedhosts.conf


maybe i'm just not seeing the overall point as compared to existing 
capabilities?
