Sounds like a whitelist of URLs to check against the blacklist would be
appropriate here.

I know that content-filtering company 8e6 had a problem over 2 years ago
with some good well-known sites.  Somewhere around that time they hardcoded
categories for the top 500 sites, so that if something slipped through the
cracks again, the impact would be smaller.

This morning whilest Googling, I got a bunch of "Permission Denied" to
"/interstitial?..." URLs on Google.

Then all my search results got listed as "This site may harm your
computer."

Is Google broken, or is the functionality of listing sites as broken,
broken?
