I simply don't understand this animosity towards black-listing.
Pretty funny from the guy who blocks the globe from a US site, you're the ultimate whitelister if ever there was one!
There is no animosity.
Blacklisting is simply a waste of time and resources, both human and server.
That's like saying I have animosity over Vinyl records or CDs now that I can carry thousands of MP3s in my pocket and access them instantly vs. a room full (which I had) where you have to dig around for stuff. Nor do I have animosity over books and magazines, which I also had in mass quantity, now that I have a Nook tablet and can carry what would've been tons worth of books in single small device.
Same with whitelisting, mass quantity of meaningless junk clogging the system and wasting time when in reality it's more the handful of things most allow vs. the high quantity of junk disallowed.
It's just a different paradigm that is clearly more efficient than the old way.
Been there, done that, will never do that again.
However, I do have a beef with newspapers.
