Makes little difference - you still need to know in advance which domains are good/bad and there will always be false positives/negatives
Why would you manually create a list when it could be done programmatically? I would suggest that such an extension or modification would simply detect new domains when a link is posted and you have moderator/admin panel to approve once, deny once, approve permanently or deny permanently. You would actually be creating whitelist and black list. New domain that is posted could be hidden with "link approval pending". There would be boatload of them to start with but it would thin out eventually on most forums. You could even provide default list that would include common domains like google, youtube etc.
If you have forum like phpbb.com it may not be practical since so many domains are being posted but that is going to be exception instead of the rule.
