Catch 22

You're an honest to good start-up but you're not on the list. How are you supposed to get on the list when you're constantly being blocked (for no good reason). Seems to be a classic Catch 22 situation to me. Would Google be where they are now if there had been extensive use of whitelists when they burst onto the scene. Could this really be an underhanded attempt by Google to stifle future competitors?
