Thanks.<br> <br> <strong><font color="#FF0000">UPDATE</font></strong><font color="#FF0000"> (May 20, 2006):</font></p> <p>Dear friends of &quot;Naomi&quot;,<br> <br> With this message I wish to thank you all for your help with this project.<br> <br> It's been a long time since I have released the first version of Naomi, and your comments and suggestions have been determinative. Unfortunately, though, I don't have time to devote to Naomi anymore as I'm busy with my job. Since I don't have any collaborators, I cannot work on this project anymore.<br> <br> I have received a proposal from a Firm that wanted to buy Naomi, but I refused because the very reason for which I have developed Naomi was the lack of FREE content filters - not making money or producing another commercial filter. Luckily, it seems things are slowly changing, as Microsoft has finally announced that they are planning to release a free family filter for Windows. It was about time that an operating system for home use included a free family filter! I don't know what it will block and how. You can find more information here: <a href="http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2006/mar06/03-13WLFamilySettingsPR.mspx">http://www.microsoft.com/presspass/press/2006/mar06/03-13WLFamilySettingsPR.mspx</a><br> <br> But why filtering? Often, people equate filtering with censorship. Honestly I don't understand why a kid that wants to search the web for his/her favourite cartoon, has to see countless websites containing porn, simulated rape, hate, violence, often even trojans and dialers. Anti-censorship advocates insist on waging war on all forms of content filtering; but if people have the right to publish WHATEVER they want on the internet - the same internet that my children use for studying and staying in touch with their friends - then I do reclaim the right for my children to surf the web safely.<br> <br> I can only hope that more people will take this matter seriously. There are literally thousands free, open source projects, and many skilled programmers are devoting their spare time to these projects - often, clones of instant messengers, games, antiviruses, linux-based distros and so on. Without doubt, if they wanted, they could create a free, sophisticated content filter, to protect children from all kinds of inappropriate content, and yet easy to use for parents.
