Example: I have about 20,000 songs. My genres are basically useless to me. I haven't been keeping them up or paying attention to what they rip as, and I ended up with about 950 different genres. So I cleared them (as I said they're useless to me now so I had nothing to lose) ran this script, and I ended up with about 1,100 different genres including many with only one song, and some of them weren't even genres, such as "epic win" and just the letter 'a'. Also many of your songs will end up with decades as the genre, (90s, 80s etc). Not the point of the genre field. So while it's a great script/idea, the database of genres from which it grabs is too convoluted. Still looking for a script that will write only the major genres, like you'd see in a record store. There's a reason they don't use too many sub genres in a record store.. because it doesn't help you organize anyways.
This is exactly what the whitelist/blacklist feature is designed for. There's a lot of information in this thread about how to use it as well as sample whitelists posted by some users.
