i am not voting in this poll because...

because i have taken a completely different approach, i have been using a list of websites that are known for adware and malware plus intrusive social media websites included too and i added them to my /etc/hosts file and i directed them all to which makes it so my PC just wont connect to those websites, and it is systemwide too so no matter which application wants internet it dont get to connect to those websites i have blacklisted

^ Interesting, thanks for sharing even if I'm not sure to see how it is related to our "Privacy Solution of the Year" (KeePass, GnuPG, VeraCrypt)...
Anyway, in a security aspect, IMHO you should not be too confident with your blacklist because this is just a blacklist eventually and everything that is not included is accepted by design. So from my side you play cat and mouse and you will always run late upon new fraudulent URLs creation...
