Hi Thomas,

Glad everything's working fine for you.

We try our best to explain why blocklists are problematic, why embedding is
the preferred setup, and why embedding on GPT is not possible without the
BBP as a dedicated partition.

If you think this could be better explained, suggestions are welcome.
