Whitelists don't work.

Well not as they are at present for most people. Some Schools I know adopt a whitelist approach, that just about works for pupils but I often hear teachers complaining it blocks x, y or z! In my work I often visit half dozen new sites each day many are small and I doubt would be on whitelists.
