That is an interesting question, it should not be too easy to find
(thaat would make blocking too easy to) but also not too hard. For now
manual propagation is the tool to use ;) but i would appreciate any
feedback on this.

At this moment the proxy is limited to a list of sites you add to it (a
default small list is included) on the settings page.
A setting to extend this to all sites will be added in the future (after
more code and security reviews)

If you browse to[repress permalink]/ a list will be shown
of sites that are made available through the proxy.

so this can be changed on a per install basis. also if you use https the
url is not sent in the clear, so it cannot be filtered.

that is also an interesting idea
