Think of it this way.

MWG does one thing... Explicitly Block based on some criteria (category, user, group, IP address, URL, or any of 800 other properties)

Everything that is not blocked is allowed.

If something in the policy is blocking, you put rules above it that jump around the blocked rule. This is usually done with a Stop Rule Set, so the processing halts, and skips to the next rule set below it.

It's a flowchart that decides on every rule and every condition if something should block or just move on to the next rule.

I am a student and when I try to get on math games or other games to play on freetime, Mcafee just blocks so many things and I can't have any fun.
