What is the best type of porn filter? How do they work?

Yeah I blocked some on the router (supplied by my IP). I set it to block all adult contents, but now I see hes been using tunnel proxies...hmmmm...Yes, I need a keyword blocker of some sort ....Not sure what's good. I searched google and found the internet filter for Mac is popular. Have you heard of it? Thank you for the detailed answer.

  2. Net nanny works well, and also works in conjunction with many porn sites who tag themselves for the software to filer out.

    You can also filter out a fair amount, just by saving your search preferences on Google to strict.

  3. Tunnel proxies oe anonymisers are a pain. Our filter at http://www.wisechoice.net blocks the anonymisers and is designed to block adults from pron. It also provides accountability reporting so that a partnerwill be alerted if the user is attempting to break into blocked areas.

    Actually they are perfect tools to prevent your children from being abducted by predators, from having your teen's sexuality defined by S&M and other twisted sites. Perfect tool to keep the adult out of trouble and the family from falling apart.

    I remember as a kid that there were plenty of things that were not permitted and that everyone's parents were checking thier behaviors. It was a good thing.

  8. I think 1 reply was all you needed to get your point across, Ned.

    Still, I think you are over-reacting. I could start a long debate about how porn is not the devilish cesspool of mentally damaging, perverse material that conservative people make it out to be, but I think that would be irrelevant to OP's question, as it is not providing an answer to her query...it's just that the moment I hear terms like "keyboard blocker" come up, I get deja vus to George Orwell's 1984 Thought Police.
  9. I agree with Sir Arun. Putting these kind of filters just makes kids waste their time trying to bypass them. But if the parents really must then I guess it's up to them.
