try gentech and Nativ USA all others are quite easy to get through them!

I have gentech through tag.
One thing I don't like is that they started to use non Jews as their representatives, they have no problem opening you anything you ask for (not direct porn sites). BH I never called in with a plan to do wrong things.

@youcan i had the same problem so i called up TAG and made them put a note on my account that nobody is allowed to open my account up for me, unless i'm in the TAG office myself!

Wishing you luck Yankel!

Good idea Yankel. 

BTW in order for K9 (and probably most other filters) to be effective, you can’t be the admin on your computer. So if you want to be safe have your wife/friend/TAG guy change the password on the admin account (that’s usually the first account you created when you first set up the computer) and create a separate user-level account for you to use. 
!אנא עבדא דקודשא בריך הוא

וּבְיָדְךָ כֹּחַ וּגְבוּרָה וּבְיָדְךָ לְגַדֵּל וּלְחַזֵּק לַכֹּל

And every day that you want to waste, that you want to waste, you can
And every day that you want to wake up, that you want to wake, you can
And every day that you want to change, that you want to change, yeah
I'll help you see it through...

R Yankel, right when I read your first post I saw that your very powerful & you prove it to me over an over... I don't know where you got that name (impowerless) from...

R gevura, my wife or even friend is not a good idea for me as I mentioned, it's too easy for me to get them to open things for me without suspecting. Also I shouldn't have access to the email address associated with the filter account cuz I can request a new password etc etc..... (On the PC we have now at home temporarily, we have k9 and the email address is my wife's GYE email to which I don't have access)

@youcan let me share with you a little secret you are right one of my qualities is i act powerful, i have done a lot of great things in my life because of this quality but it has also gotten me into a lot of trouble when i had my power struggle with my parents and principal in 9th grade it was this quality that kinda made things get to such bad levels, and it was this quality that prevented me from reaching out to help in my struggles until now. btw i have 2 GYE account's the 1st one my username was yankelthefighter but trying to fight to hard with this struggle just caused me too much stress and as such i kept falling as such i started fresh with a new username iampowerless only once i realized that this addiction is terrible and i'm powerless and i need to reach out to hashem and others in my struggle because as powerful as i might make it like i am in regards to this struggle i'm powerless!! That's the answer behind my name

Lots Of Love Yankel!

I think I disagree (you let me know..)
You are a really good quality & powerful person, who also has a big ego (usually comes together, especially with what you went through), so could be you used your talents not only on the right places. So you can work on this if you want, to use your talents only in the right way. This is a thing every person has to work on with his natures. Every מדה you can use in both ways, our work is, as the rambam says to get on the דרך הממוצע.

I will check out your old account of course... I'm also in the middle of reading your thread & thinking how to reply...

But let me tell this again; you are very powerful! I think you already had a positive impact on many gye'ers.

Rock bottom is the way up for many of us. "I am powerless" is an expression of bottom up

Youcan if you're stuck for a long time on day 4,5 hitting powerlessness can help you to if you so wish. And if it helps, Rabbi Twersky in last week's parsha explains that learning Mussar works can bring one to rock-bottom and get the Trucking engine started (he talks about pharaoh - not trucks...)

Markz, you are so so right. I am very very powerless. But the good news is that i'm working on it. I just got in touch with one of the big people here on gye & i'm in therapy. i feel like i'm doing my best in my currant situation. (not that i'm happy with the results so far, but even though i'm powerless, i'm not hopeless).
let's wait a week & see if something changed.. this will be a week of hard hard work - with hashem's help of course!
Thanks markz, i really appreciate it!

Dear Friend

I know that you meant no bad but I will use some strong words in response to the above vort
CV"S to say that Yaakov avienu hated Leah it is very clearly stated by all miforshim that it was in comparison to Rochel 
I am only responding like this as it bothers me that people put their own emotions into the Torah.
Yes we are all struggling and want and maybe even need validation but there has to be a limit on how far we will go to get it 

While it's true that radak and rabbeinu bachye say chas v'shalom that he hated her, the ramban (in beginning) and others and it is the simple pshat that he indeed did hate her.

This (at least the part of hatred) is not an example of putting one's own emotions into the torah.
I'm all about that (substantial) bass, no trouble ....
