Wasn't the whole point of getting rid of Namecoin was to not have to worry
about blacklisting things anymore?

Blacklisting is a bad idea, whether it be for ransomware, porn, adblocking,
politics, religion, or anything else. Even ISPs don't do that, and can't do
that in jurisdictions where there's net neutrality.

Policing the world is usually a really bad idea.
