Why would you want to do that? huh :]

There really isnt a sure fire way to do this. If you wanted to really look at pr0n you can just go to alta vista's babelfish and have it translate a web page. Then enter <smut>.com into that. When you look at what that user was doing it shows them at alta vista the whole time. ;]

i also suggest dansguardian... i've been using it at a cybercafe for a while and it's been very effective at blocking unappropiate websites...

DansGuardian is an award winning Open Source web content filter which currently runs on Linux, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, Mac OS X, HP-UX, and Solaris. It filters the actual content of pages based on many methods including phrase matching, PICS filtering and URL filtering. It does not purely filter based on a banned list of sites like lesser totally commercial filters.

DansGuardian is designed to be completely flexible and allows you to tailor the filtering to your exact needs. It can be as draconian or as unobstructive as you want. The default settings are geared towards what a primay school might want but DansGuardian puts you in control of what you want to block.

just my two cents...
