So I found out the limit brought up in this post:http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=113459#p113451
as to what the Whitelist can hold. MediaMonkey will crash if the GenreFinder>Lists value in MediaMonkey.ini is over 2048 characters long. Unfortunately, the Whitelist I was trying to make was over twice that, so I had to used the * to use the entries already existing in my Genres table.
Here they are, and I know, I know. It is more than a mouthful, but it suits me very well. It took a very long time to widdle it down to that. I did a Top 5 GenreFinder search on 130,000+ songs, and narrowed my database down from what Last.fm spit out. It leans more toward electronic music, and the harder side of rock. I also allowed some location-based genres, but have been considering eliminating them... This should account for most genres and sub-genres, and even plenty of sub-sub-genres for those who are nearly as picky as I am.

Once the duplicate genres issue described above is fixed, I will also be adding the following translations to my Whitelist:
%Screamo=Screamo,2 Tone=Two-Tone,A Capella=Acapella,A Cappella=Acapella,Acoustic Guitar=Acoustic,Anarch%=Anarchist,Avant%=Avant-Garde,Bashment=Dancehall,Brasil=Brazilian,Brazil%=Brazilian,British%=British,Buddhism=Buddhist,Canada%=Canadian,Chill=Chill Out,Chillout=Chill Out,Crust Punk=Crust,Deathrash=Death Punk,Deathrock=Death Punk,Dnb=Drum And Bass,Doom%=Doom Metal,Drone%=Drone,Drum N Bass=Drum And Bass,Drummer=Drums,Drumming=Drums,Euro%=European,Female Vocalist=Female Vocalists,Glam%=Glam,Grind=Grindcore,Hip Hop=Hip-Hop,Hiphop=Hip-Hop,Indiepop=Indie Pop,Indie-Pop=Indie Pop,Jamaican=Jamaica,Japanese=Japan,Jew%=Jewish,Korean%=Korean,New Jersey%=New Jersey,New Orleans%=New Orleans,New School Hc=New School Hardcore,New York% = New York,Nu-Metal=Nu Metal,Oldschool% = Old School%,Piano Rock=Piano,Political%=Political,Pop-Punk=Pop Punk,Pop-Rock=Pop Rock,Posi=Positive Hardcore,Posicore=Positive Hardcore,Post Grunge=Post-Grunge,Post Hardcore=Post-Hardcore,Post Metal=Post-Metal,Post Rock=Post-Rock,Punk Rock=Punk,Punkrock=Punk,Punk-Rock=Punk,R And B=R&B,Rnb=R&B,Rock And Roll=Rock,Rock N Roll=Rock,Ska-Punk=Ska Punk,Straight-Edge=Straight Edge,Surf=Surf Rock,Synthpop=Synth Pop
Trix, thanks again for this awesome script, hope you can find the time to look into the duplicates resulting from translations. Here are some steps to reproduce:
Genres in database - Punk, Rock, Political
GenreFinder options - Run mode: Artist, Use top results: 5, Genre | White | *+Political%=Political
Song - No Paradise by Anti-Flag, empty Genre field
Results - Change To: Punk; Political; Rock; Political (this one comes from translating 'Political Punk' to 'Political')
Hope that helps, thanks! Sorry for the long post
