We specialize in serving intelligent network administrators high quality blacklists for effective, targeted inline web filtering leveraging Squid proxy. We are the worlds leading and ONLY publisher of blacklists tailored specifically for use with Squid Proxy Native ACL. We also publish the worlds LARGEST adult domain blacklist, as well, as the worlds first blasphemy blacklist. Our works are available in several alternative formats for compatibility with multiple other web filter platforms. There is a demand for a better blacklist. And with few alternatives available, we intend to fill that gap.
