There is a way.

If you have a higher-end router with firewall you can blacklist the IP ranges which host bad servers. If you don't, then you can use some free firewall on PC and accomplish the same.

If you are interested I have already compiled a blocklist of servers which:

1. Have wrong difficulty set (famouse z_difficulty normal in autoexec.cfg).
2. Have wrong game mode set
3. Have Return to lobby disabled
4. Have bad ping (for me)

I can post it here with a disclaimer that I am not responsible if it also blocks something you might want to access.

Here you go, the list is in CIDR notation.

Keep in mind that this blocks A LOT of servers -- Russian, Romanian, Polish, Hungarian, Macedonian, etc, so you might want to check each range manually so you don't block your own ISP :)

Basically what I did was to get server IP from console, then do a whois lookup on it, and then take a registered network range and block the whole range (because it usually hosts serveral servers at similar IPs).
