Little Snitch Configuration advice

I finally have my new MacMini and Mountain Lion and am starting from scratch installing all my programs.

I am also realizing how much a pain I must have gone through years ago when I set permissions for Little Snitch.

Is there a database out there for all the hundreds of stupid alerts that come up so that I know what the heck I should bother blocking?

Anyone have any rules for what they block?

Did I ask this in the wrong forum? Figured 10.8 would be good because it's my current OS and users here would encounter similar items trying to access the internet.

I tend to just block the things I don't need or want or don't benefit me or work against me... tracking stuff, apps that phone home trying to contact an unneccesary activation server or what not

MOD NOTE: Maybe better in apps since not all 10.8 users use Little Snitch.

Any listings for Little Snitch configurations?

Hello, I recently updated to 10.8 and with it have cleanly installed all programs including Little Snitch.

I had completely forgotten how tedious the process is setting permissions? Naturally there are a million requests popping up and it's very hard figuring out what they are.

Is there an available list of which items I should block if they don't serve me the greater good?

I don't know of any lists, but many of them I can easily figure out on my own. Others, I will do a Google search to see what they are before making a decision on allowing it or not.
