Maybe there is. Block traffic to:

www.brilliantdigital.com
desktop.kazaa.com
shop.kazaa.com
www.bonzi.com
www.b3d.com

It has been a couple of months since I used KazaaLite. At the time
the README advised to add these sites to the HOSTS file in
c:\windows pointing them to 127.0.0.1.

Perhaps there is a better way to block traffic to these destinations
under Linux?

Anyway, this disabled only the start page in Kazaa. All the rest
worked like a charm. Perhaps it still works.
