I try to stop students on a highschool to visit unwanted sites.
Unwanted for me (and probably many others with me) , means sex, games,
violence, extreme political groups and so on.
Wouldn't it be a good idea to maintain a list wich is split up sections
with all sorts of unwanted url's , domains, and or ip-addresses??
People who want to use it can delete portions of the file they don't see as
unwanted. Ofcourse there has to be someone in charge to be the list-master,
to look for double entry's and so on.
Ofcourse there is a risk someone adds a URL of someone he/she dislikes.

Just an idea
