AFAIK this practice (and not on the FileZilla project alone) is why uBlock Origin is blocking SourceForge.

Though ublock origin can use it, it's the ublock badware risks filter list which is blocking sourceforge : https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/wiki/Badware-risks

You are linking to uBlock Origin ("uBO") -- that filter list is specific to uBO. The other "uBlock"[1] (abandonware) does not support strict blocking, which is what blocks SourceForge.

Sorry if I didn't make myself clear, what I was trying to point out is that for ublock origin to block sourceforge the badware risk filter list has to be enabled. Also I suppose this list can used with other blocking software.

Oh and gorhill, much much thanks for your time and work on this.

That's the github project for uBlock Origin.
