Yesterday I blocked Pushly in ADBLK-6

But, it's not (strictly speaking) ad or tracking code, it's just un-necessary code (which could be used to track), so rather then being definitely undesirable is Potentially Undesirable.

So, should create a new list for Potentially Undesirable Shit that stuff like Pushly can go on - the PUS list.

Toggle State Changes


One issue with doing this, though, is really it'd mean duplicating various lists.

Currently we have the following list generated from the sources

- Full Autolist:
- Adblock sytax compiled:
- Modified version of Easylist:
- Blocked domain list (for PiHole):
- ADBLK-8 Blocked zones unbound format:

To implement this task, a second version of each of those would need to be made so there's one with the grey area stuff, and one without.

If the grey-area stuff is sufficiently grey, then the default should probably be without.

The list are already starting to cry out for a bit of tidying/reorganising, so I don't know if I want to rush into making more lists.

Looking over the blocked pages, Pushly is the main one that could be considered a bit of a grey-area so there probably isn't actually that much rush with this.
