I found it through Google. Not exactly sure what the circumstances were, but I think it was after seeing some really disturbing pr0nz, when I realized that things were spinning out of control, and I searched for "internet filter" or "porn filter" or something along those lines. I had actually stumbled upon it once before and I was trying to find it again. I don't remember how I found it the first time.

I'm currently in NYC (PLEASE GET ME OUTTA HERE) but I'm originally from somewhere west of the Mississippi.

I'm in Israel. I found it when I googled for help. I can't remember clearly, but I think I searched with some Jewish reference.

Found GYE, or was it GUE, when I did a search for "Shmiras Eiynayim", or som'in like tha', when I finally realized I needed more help.

I'm from the Tri-State area, home of the Free and Overtaxed, but until recently I was living in the state of Denial.

(oh, and what did YOU do on your summer vacation...?)

enLIGHTening... very appropriate for Chanukah.

I found out about GUE on the yeshiva world (no, I'm not one of "them" but I do check it out from time to time for the hilarious comments). It took a while before I actually started to use the site, but at least I knew it was out there. Oh, and I'm from the other side of the world (a.k.a. somewhere outside of NY, though I'm in NY now).

A google search pointed me to a different frum internet addiction site which linked to GYE. This was back when there were only a handful of people posting. It's truly amazing to see how this place has blown up since I joined 1.25 years ago!

I'm in Texas yeeeehhhhhaaaawww!
