new here and filter question 21 May 2009 13:10 #5131

  • chl

Hi am new here, and would like to thank everybody involved in this website and forum. It gives a lot of chizuk to read the stories and chizuk-tips. Baruch Hashem i don't have a problem with porn or masturbation (although i did masturbate until 10 years ago). I am happily married, but there is something missing, and i have the feeling that that something makes me want to flirt with other women, or maybe more. So far, b"h nothing happened. But i don't want to take a chance, so i joined the forum (i found especially miribn's journal very inspiring. what a story, and what a courage.).

I have a question concerning filters. i tried to download the k9 filter, but upon clicking the desktop item, there was just a short flicker, and -  nothing. i looked into their forums, and some people had the same issue - but no solutions (the only solution offered did not work for me). I then looked further through their forum to see that people have questions/issues with the filter, but no answers. A look at the "support"-site of K9 showed no email addresses/phone numbers for help. I thought that was a little shvach... do you have good experience with the product (i guess you do if you encourage people to use it). Are there alternatives?

Thank you for everything

I have used another filter for the last 3 years. It is called "safeeyes" ( I got it only for the purpose of avoiding inadvertent access to tumah related sites by my kids. Costs about $50/year, has a 24 hr teelphone help (no waiting), it is headache free and never had a major problem with it. It also lets me allocate times of web use for my kids.

I'm sorry you are having issues with K9. Please see our filter section here for over 20 filter options, some free some not...

As far as your issues, please read this page AND this page of our FAQ...

Thanks yosefyakov, i am going to check it out. As i said i, b"h, am not attracted to porn, but i peek at regular movies or shows... (which are bad enough nowadays).

Thanks too to guardureyes. Thank you for the two links. I definitively do not want to ruin my marriage.

I would also like to say that i really like the "Today is the first day...". I already got two strong messages from there:
1) just because one battle is lost, the whole war is not lost. That's a great message.
2) Take on one thing that i can manage (occupy one small part of the yh-country). I think that is a very powerful tool in all areas of life.

Thank you so much.
