You could always try one of those ad-blocking databases for firefox. The Ad-Block Plus plugin, I was thinking of specifically. http://easylist.adblockplus.org You could grab that file, then parse it and grab the domains out of it to block. I know this isn't what you want, but it may come in useful anyway: http://www.okean.com/asianspamblocks.html _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
