I have the whitelisted error too for my own instance. :(
There's a lot of Mastodon instances, doing a whitelist is a terrible idea. Especially since the goal of Mastodon is to not put everyone in the same silo.
My original implementation didn't have a whitelisting mechanism, but others disagreed. See the PR for the discussion.
Cool, will do.
