How to block the whole Internet except Google Docs?

I'm a longtime user of Cold Turkey new to Pluckeye and don't know much about code syntax, but from mining the FAQ and Reddit I've managed to add my daily whiteout of 1 - 2:30 PM for the whole internet. At all other times I want to block the whole Internet, but allow Google Docs, Drive and Calendar. I added "Allow" commands for each of those sites but I worry that if I add a rule for Blackout at all other times it won't respect those allowances. Haven't been able to find any hints to the contrary anyways. Is that true? And if so, how else do I go about blocking the whole Net minus my exceptions?

Re: How to block the whole Internet except Google Docs?

With Pluckeye, a blackout overrides everything else, so don't use it unless you want absolutely no Internet.
And a whiteout overrides everything except a blackout.

It sounds like you want:

pluck add "allow accounts.google.com"
pluck add "allow calendar.google.com"
pluck add "allow docs.google.com"
pluck add "allow drive.google.com"
pluck add "block"
pluck add "sometimes 13-1430 whiteout"

Allowing accounts.google.com may be unnecessary, but it probably won't hurt.

The unadorned block is what will block everything that is not explicitly allowed.
