Google said ..... its own filter to block child pornography.....

But your filter is not working fine. Unable to detect blogs on Google (Blogger)and Yahoo, those are giving a free referral links to dirty websites. Please block these blogs.

Australian Internet filter is a good solution.

Agree with you 100%. If “they” filter out the world surely the world has the right to filter them out. No same person agrees with child pornography but using it as a means of blocking many other sires that are objected to is the thin end of the wedge. Fine go for what is genuinely wrong, not total control.
