Before anything else: thank you, CleanBrowsing.
Our teenagers nowadays understand computers better than us: if there’s a breach, they will find it. So I like the fact that the family filter blocks anything that could have adult content, like torrent sites.
Lately I have been spending a lot of time hunting new domain names of torrent sites on search portals. But these names are like hydra: one down, two up.
I suppose you guys have an automated system to first categorize each website. Well, I would suggest that the categorization of torrent site’s ought to be more strict. There are a lot of them categorized as PG-13 with no adult content.June 23, 2020 at 9:18 pm
Mind sending the full domain name to us? That will allow us to see what is going on.

It’s my pleasure:
This domain, for example, is rated as “PG”.
There are tons of “1337x” (a famous torrent site) domains. Some of them are blocked, some are not.
There are also variations (like 13337 and 1377) as well as new domains being created regularly.June 30, 2020 at 8:45 am

And another one:
As you can see, they have lots of domains. It would be nice to block everything starting with 1337x.July 1, 2020 at 10:01 pm
Thanks for the list. We had fixed many of them for the past week and we will correct these too.
