Allow lists

I've used Peerblock for a while now, and like it. I just did a reinstall of Windows, downloaded PB, and started configuring and reading up on how to use PB.
I notice I should:
1. Block HTTP
2. Use an 'Allow List' to access webpages.

My question is: On the I-Blocklist website, I don't see any lists which are named specifically as an 'Allow List'. Would you mind providing a little direction regarding this?

Heya reefshark1975.

The blocklists in iblocklist site are to be used with your own judgement. For instance "Blizzard" lists could be used to as either block or allow. If you put block, you'll guarantee yourself to never enjoy Blizzard's services such as World of Warcraft or Broodwar. If you put it as allow, you'll guarantee yourself to be able to enjoy Blizzard's services without hinderance.

another example is when if you surf with http blocked and some of your daily websites get blocked you could right click on the websites ip's in the history to allow for 15 mins or permanently in your "perm allow" list, when you start allowing ip's PB automatically creates an "perm allow" list for you to store them.

if however having http blocked while surfing is too much of a pain then just disable http blocking while surfing the web then when done re-enable http blocking.

it's annoying to have to do this for each ip for a particular website.

e.g. iplay fantasy football. The PB notes that all the sites are sportsline.com, but still makes me 'permanently allow" the various ip's instead of a 'allow all from sportsline.com" or something. I guess i'll post this in the new feature lists.
