What's a GrayList?

 

Well, a black list is a list of banned sites or addresses. A white list is a list of approved ones. This is a list of sites that might be blocked, some with good reason, some not. The objective is to gain more data about the situation.

 

OK, now that we have a simple tool that will test a list of URL's to see if they are being blocked or filtered ( http://tuttlesvc.teacherhosting.com/filtrchekr/ ) we need a standard list of sites to check. Once we have a standard list, we can build an online database to track the patterns across the country.

 

The idea here is not to test things (i.e., porn) that obviously should be blocked. The objective is to test the availability of resources that are plausibly useful or at least harmless. The main categories are blogs, blog hosts, search engines, web 2.0 tools, news, social networking, webmail. Perhaps there are more.

 

At this point, there are about 270 sites on the list. Filtr Chekr will by default test about 10 sites a minute, so at that rate, it'll take about a half hour to run. It can go much faster, if you aren't afraid someone is going to accuse you of flooding the network. Since you can leave it running in the background, a half hour doesn't seem problematic.
