    What's the recommended way to block Beebo?

    Probably the wrong place to ask this type of question, but I didn't see a more appropriate forum.

    Is it as simple as 0.0.0.0 to the hosts file, or are there dozens of ways to access that site?

    Yep, point Beebo's domain name to the localhost or null IP.
    This doesn't prevent access by typing the IP by hand.

    I think the OT means Bebo, which is a social networking site.

    Another way is to use OpenDNS and add Bebo to the blocked sites list.
