    It's there already, but the name is Webspam.

    The webspam category gets of these kinds of things, but I think a "Clickbait" category should still be useful to block stuff like BoredPanda, Diply, PizzaBottle, viral-(anything), and (the worst one) BuzzFeed. These are sites that are full of "lists" of mind-numbingly useless things ("17 80s Stars Who Are Now Dentists"). Like transdimensia said, they're just lists with each page containing a single item and full of (usually trashy) advertisements. I block them individually as I come across them, but it would be nice to have a category. I know that Webspam doesn't catch these sites, because I have Webspam checked, and they still pop up everywhere.

    Fine.  Why didn't you vote up the idea then?  A comment here will cause nothing.
