So I finally set up a Pi Hole last week and the stats it spits out are simply nauseating

@zachflower Excluding anything that's cached on your machines.

@zachflower As of a few moments ago, mine was 10,580 and 47.5%. And we use uBlock Origin on All The Things. It's disturbing how much we are assaulted with adverts and tracking. :(

@zachflower my Pi Hole tells me exactly what I've long suspected: that my phone's network traffic is more ad- or tracking-related than actual useful traffic.

Since I have cursed my phone with Outlook (because work), their tracking is by far the most requested host answered by the blocklist. On a typical day, 40% of queries shoved through the Pi Hole are answered by the blocklist.
