Re: Renaming whitelist->acceptlist, blacklist->denylist

All: Minor correction.
The more common term seems to be "allowlist" not "acceptlist" . E.g.:
https://www.zdnet.com/article/linux-team-approves-new-terminology-bans-terms-like-blacklist-and-slave/
So I plan to use "allowlist" everywhere, not acceptlist.

These are new words, so I didn't immediately notice the inconsistency.
I'll note that Google docs is *already* accepting allowlist as a single word.
