Geeze, I thought Rense.com had some wackos. I fully expected to see the usual supermarket tabloid pic of a little alien somewhere there. The problem with the wacko sites is you can't trust anything they say unless you want to spend time drilling down to find an original source or two to see how things have been twisted.

Just a few updates to make it more robust.

These updates include:
- Making it get the blocked list from multiple servers if some fail
- After every 15 redirects you will be redirected to our "help us" page

Generally, just messing around with the code and learning some more FF add-on programming.

Just what I want; another nagger add-on. I'll pass.

slightly related...

the state of NC, its counties and cities, just spent a ton of money flying aerial photographs.

the DHS decided that it was going to "black out" certain areas, and prevent the state from distributing aerial photos of them, because they were close to sensitive government property. They were blacking out entire towns, one of them being a widely visited tourist area. You can look this area up on Google Maps! It is no big deal. DHS is pure stupidity.
