The criteria for what "one" would like to block are much too ill-defined to
make a single list possible. Some want to block porn, others make a living
from it. Some want to block dissident political sites, others deem it a
cornerstone of human rights to let them through. Some want to block strong
crypto software, others think it should for security reasons be disseminated
as widely as possible. Etc. etc.

You'll have to ask more specifically, eg.: "Is there a list of sites deemed
illegal in country X", "is there a list of sites considered politically
incorrect with respect to community Y", or "is there a list of sites which
are likely to offend a faithful member of religion Z".
