Reply To: Recategorise submissions to block (mixed) sites
Yeah, I get you, flipflop. But I don’t see them blocking something like Flair or the gazillion websites classified as “photography” (123rf.com, to name one, has similar content). I mean, Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms have images/videos/posts a thousand times stronger (and perfectly easy to access)… They don’t block that. They blocked Reddit, though.
Search engines (and general video and tech websites) could be a much bigger issue, I think. Young people look up information on how to circumvent different types of restrictions (they have become really crafty at that) or simply go to a search engine that doesn’t offer any “safe search” filtering (the vast majority of them) and search for inappropriate content.
I guess the only way to solve this is to only allow “whitelisted” pages, using the paid service, or to block locally using something like the hosts file on Windows.
Still, Clean Browsing is WAY better than the competition. 🙂
