Raspberry Pi as "ADBLOCK" box for the entire network

These days most of us have multiple devices connected to the internet. AD campaigns are so evil and boring. Instead of installing some AD block extension on each device, I'm using dnsmasq service (lightweight DHCP and DNS server) which is installed on a Raspberry Pi. Dnsmasq blocks ADs based on DNS queries for the entire network. Distribution on RaspberryPi is Raspbian.
