I agree with all of you. However an addiction is an addiction. Temptation is Temptation. K9 was a great program! I used it for 4 years. I simply installed it, and then created a giant number password that my brain couldn't remember. Then I gave that password to a friend. Since He's online a lot, building his websites. I was always able to get the password whenever I needed to make an adjustment or add a new site to filter. For example blogspot is not usually blocked, but it does have porno in it. All you got to do is look a little bit LOL. Yeah I think it is ok to laugh about that. All of us computer geeks have something inside of us that likes to do a little hacking. You know the "hmmmmmmm, I wonder what could be in here???" The per bidden fruit. I know I know, I said no "Religious, and Psychology controversy" but that is what the root of this whole thing is about. You did a good job nailing it. LH is right!!!! It should be blocked at the source. Some people say blocking it hinders freedom of speech. It is a very hard argument to argue. But I look at it this way. The internet is meant for general audience. Meaning it has the young the old, various religions, and the non religious. But there is something logical that hasn't been done. Something that would, I think, satisfy everyone. It has been proposed by a former pornstar that porn should be put on a separate internet channel. Now you guys understand the web better than I do. But wouldn't it be nice if something like that could be done? In other words, those that want in their homes, would just simply pay a small fee to get access to it. Just like we do if we want something like the playboy channel on Cable TV. But now everyone is going to the V chip for kids. It's ridiculous in my opinion. Why should we the consumer have to add software to our computers, and passwords to our TVs?
K9 started crashing my computer. :( I had my machine in the shop a total of 4 times because of it. I replaced the power supply and modem. And after paying them to fix my computer, I finally figured out what was really causing the problem. I did a little internet research and found out that K9 can cause blue screens on some computers. I wrote K9 about it. They replied, and wanted me to send them a dump file. I had lots of trouble finding the dump file. Finally I found a mini-dump file and e-mailed it them. I apologized for not finding exactly what they wanted. After sometime went by they asked me to try the new K9 Beta. I had already decided to try CyberPatrol. I wasn't happy with it. It complained way to many times, about some 3rd party application damaged it, and asked me to fix it. After that I had to restart my computer. This was happening almost every other time. I have no idea what was causing the issue. But I finally listened to VistaMike and got rid of a bunch of stuff. So far my computer is running happy now :) Thanks vistual, vistamike, LH, and GuiltySpark.

Windows Explorer (not Internet Explorer Started Crashing)
If anyone knows exactly where to find the dump file, and what I need to get to read it. I'd love to hear more about that. :) Because if the K9 beta doesn't work out, I'd like to help them figure out whats going wrong. In the event that I can not, then I'll just have to up my self-control. :D
