Can we block pornography while it's waiting for votes / pending?

    The one I'm frustrated by today is tyler-brown.com and whatisareverseauction.com.  I can block them on my own account right now, but they won't be blocked for the public or for devices in my home that aren't set up on opendns, for a year...

    Your best bet to get domains submitted to the domain tagging system approved quickly is to raise a support ticket, link "Submit a request" above.

    And no, I cannot support your idea.  Such a feature would open the doors for abuse by these trolls to block any believable web sites whenever they want.  Even yet, there are so many fake and false submissions, so that would be a real and viable risk without the control of a final approval.

    Would it be feasible to create an option for users to decide whether they want to blacklist upon submission or blacklist upon final approval in that category? I agree that porn sites are short lived enough that there are many users that would prefer that option even with the risk of false positives and trolls.

    It would be probably feasible if people voted this idea up.  Votes is all what counts.  The idea has currently zero votes.  (The original poster voted up, I voted down.)

    I would have voted up for it, if the original poster requested this as an option only as you did, but he wanted this generally enforced which is nonsense.

    I visited the site VIA webpagetest.org which provides somewhat safe thumbnails revealing this as obvious Pornography.     Perhaps one resolution is to acquire a few more associates whom may assist you in acquiring the required category votes.  I added my vote to the Pornography category.   

    Another approach; most of the adult content is apparently streaming from *.userapi.com which appears to be directly related to VK.COM as a visit to the TLD redirects to VK.com.   If you really do not want this content on your network, perhaps you add a block list entry for all of userapi.com.  This will not block 100% of the porn, as nothing will, it will likely block porn and other content from many other TLDs that are a part of the VK.COM network.

    Settings/Web Content Fitering/Manage individual domains/Always Block userapi.com 

    Though I know this doesn't resolve the initial question in the manor proposed, it does provide a few possible solutions to the root problem. 

     

    Thank you,

    It is rather not clear what your comment has to do with the topic being discussed in this thread.
