you cant "ban" a website.

You can ban it from coming up on tech-forums if you ask a moderator, or you can make your own website and ban people from talking about it.

If it was a site performing illegal activies, than you could tell the cops and they would ban it...but is the site doing anything wrong?

Do you mean you want to block it from being accessed from your computer?

Opera has a Kiosk mode that blocks out sites.
