Kia ora Kim,

Surely there are easier ways of doing this filtering instead of spoofing 
the DNS, such as (are they common in .au? I can't recall offhand) 
transparent proxying. It'd filter it out less users, surely, but doesn't 
involve spoofing DNS.

Though does raise, of course ethical issues too. Though I can't imagine 
too many users wanting at the moment to visit a pr0n star's site over an 
Idol winner. Dunno.

Ka kite,
