Anonymous Patron sends " this brief article in Time magazine about how to keep x-rated (and more) content away from kids. Not a lot of depth or new info for those of us in the trenches. I do have to wonder if this person has kids, because of this statement:

This $40 program (available at cybersitter.com) can run in a stealth mode so your kids don't notice it's there. When they try to log on to a blocked site, they are presented with either a blank page or a standard error message that reads, "This page cannot be displayed."

My kids are smart enough to know that if they keep getting error messages on their favorite websites, something's up."
