LH quote:" Yes. Let them eat cake !!! "

Rick, LH likes those "historic" quotes. That's what Marie Antoinette was supposed to have said when the people had no bread to eat. It ultimately cost her the head under the Guillotine. Newer historians claim that she never said that though.

I think I just understood the question:) You want to stop watching porn at work. That's easy. I'm a LLC owner. If you're watching porn on my dime You're Fired! That should alter your thought process. Unless, of course, things like the roof over your head and food on your table don't mean much to you.

I have problems with censorship. Everyone has a different definition of what is porn. Many LGBT sites get blocked by porn filters and not all LGBT sites are porn.

When I originally posted this I had no idea it would take off like wild fire LOL I just merely wanted to find a decent porn filter or make the one I have work with my computer.

I feel more sorry for porn stars than I do for the people who view Porn. This may seem like an oxymoron statement. But it really isn't. If you do your research you will find that an over whelming number of porn stars were sexually abused people. As some former porn stars have said, "your viewing mentally sick people" That right there is good enough reason for porn to be eradicated.

LadyFitzgerald is right, it is hard to define what is or what isn't porn. It is an individual definition. But there is a difference between swim suite models and naked people having sex in front of a camera. For one spreads STDS and other complications into our society. The other just simply stimulates the natural human sex drive. If an individual uses a porn filter as a self-control aid, like a man who uses a cane to help him walk, I see nothing wrong with that. Nor should anyone frown on it. At least that man knows he is easily aroused and is trying to keep his mind as clean as possible. But is that really the point to all of this? We are about solving computer problems. Making software do what it is supposed to do. In this case we are discussing "how to make porn filters work."

Just for the Record. I think all of you have made some wonderful points. :)

Ah, you posted in Off-topic :)

Here's help:

Set it up, apply some strict filters, set a password to it, and forget the password.

I really hope the former in the first part of that statement refers to the latter in the second part of the statement. Otherwise I am very confused.

There is a big difference between H&E, Playboy, and some of the more explicit magazines.
Tho I haven't seen any in a long, long time, so maybe that does not apply anymore.

The name "Hatryst" doesn't originate from a hat. Although, the avatar is a HAT because you people (esp. LH) call me Hatty :)

Most people call me Lighthouse. But some call me Shitehouse, or Lamppost, and some other names I can't recall now.

Oh yeah, Lamplighter is another one.

@ Hatty - I had figured so much by now and I liked how you adjusted your avatar just for us ;)
(and as far as I know LH started calling you Hatty, I just followed suit LOL).

@ LH - do share <LOL LOL LOL>.

I do share. Too much. That is why I am poor.

Tit for tat Hatty. I share, but my dole is so low now I am workhouse poor. Bit of green cheese and mouldy bread suffices. I learned this in the HTG dungeon and survived. Get what you are given and be grateful!
I am re-threading shoelaces on shoes owned by my granddad. And that was when soles (souls) were made by tanners (or when tanners had souls)
