these are resources for blocking some of the yuckier websites from appearing in your search results
Isn't it annoying when you're searching on Google or Duckduckgo, & the top results are hate groups, conspiracy theories, phishing, & the same Pinterest post over and over? Or when you end up on a web page that you would rather not have touched with a ten-foot pole?
I just finished this project that helps fix that. These files have lists of more than 28,000 urls that you can paste into url blocking browser extensions. On Firefox, I recommend the extensions uBlacklist (to block them from your search results) and Whitelist-Blacklist-Blocker (to block you from accidentally visiting them).
This project is not for childproofing the web. It's more for queer adults like me who don't have time for TERFs or other nonsense. The "about" file in the folder gives sources for where much of the list came from, such as from Southern Poverty Law's list of hate groups, and Media Bias Fact Check's list of pseudoscience sites.
Enjoy your better-quality web search results!
