By "personally chosen domains" i mean, to be exact, domains that serve advertising.
IMHO, having access to adverts is not part of the info a user actually is searching for in its normal browsing work.
(exceptions are far less as the majority of regular-usage)
IMHO by blocking these domains the tor-network will speedup considerably because there won't be need to transfer "that garbage" :)
