What's a word that means a list of things I don't want? An anti-wishlist?

A term that is widely used in technical or organizational context is black list, as opposed to white list. Those are also often used as a verb.

We're talking specifically about a list of things people want to buy, so the term wishlist is very appropriate. In that context a blacklist doesn't seem to be what I need – Harry Oct 13 '11 at 10:54
