Hi twofingeredtyper.

Welcome to BC.

I don't know of a list of bad sites as such but if you browse the tabs at the top of each page here, you will find a heap of good info.

To block bad sites, I use HOSTS SECURE, available here: http://www.timdorr.com/syko86/ycsoft/hostssecure.htm.

Also you could check out SITE ADVISOR for IE and for Firefox which will indicate known bad sites with a coloured window on your browser.

Good luck. Cheers
