A new tool available to parents and business owners should help cut down on children and employees accessing pornography on their computers.

For years, the two most effective means of blocking porn from computers has been filtering software and firewalls.

I can't imagine how rough the repercussions could be, thinking about trust issues and privacy concerns. I would no more use something like this that I would install a Key Logger on a PC.

This is an effort to solve a social problem with technology.

I don't think I'd use something like this on a kid's computer but what's wrong with a business owner doing it. You can tell employees not to do something until you're blue in the face but until you catch one of them red handed and fire them for it, the rest won't take you seriously. Work computer = work rules

The OpenDNS blocker is very useful and I think a better way to deal with it. One of the companies I work for uses it and its very effective.

Internet filters have legitimate uses on business and government networks. Properly used, a filter can offer protection while being practically invisible to honest users. There are some specialized ISP's (such as Christian services) that use them quite effectively. However, these are not installed on individual PC's.
