Doesn't work for some reason, tried blocking youtube.com, facebook.com and reddit.com. Edit: I figured it out, when using the default rule (Block domain) it only applies to the second-level domain (youtube.com) but since many websites redirect to www (www.youtube.com) it stops working. Using the rule "Block domain & all subdomains" fixes this problem.
