    Thanks for posting this. Just the other day I was wondering if such a thing existed.

    Does anyone know the reputation of ba.net?

    Actually, such a thing already existed in the form of FoolDNS. That is what I use for my mobile devices.

    It looks, that it blocks only ADs so far, FoolDNS block phishing and malware webpages as well.

    In the FAQ section BA.net claims to block malware and phishing sites as well. But I don't know about its effectiveness. FoolDNS blocks a bit more ads but I was having trouble accessing some sites mostly some random news articles.

    FAQ claims, that it will block them in the future, therefore it does not block them now, unless it is a bad translation along with a cheap look, it does not provide much trust.
