Have You Heard of the New Filter, PluckEye?

Hey Friends,
I’d like to introduce you to my friend Jon. He’s been working on a new type of web filter that has some really cool features I think will be helpful for those of you looking for something to help cut off the flow as you seek inner-healing. It’s completely free, and he’s seeking feedback from actual users, so try it out and let him know what you think.

pluckeyeGreetings! My name is Jon Wilkes, and I’m trying to spread the word about Pluckeye, a filter to help people better control their Internet use.

Pluckeye is the filter you’ve always wanted if you really, really, really want to avoid porn on your Windows/Mac/Linux box.

Pluckeye is quite configurable, but out of the box it does the following:

  1. Blocks all images and all video from all websites.
  2. Allows text content from all websites.
  3. Permits the user to select safe sites from which images will be allowed.
  4. Permits the user to set a delay which will initiate a waiting period (e.g. 24 hours) before the user can do any of the following:
    • Add a new safe site.
    • Uninstall Pluckeye.
    • Decrease the delay.

In short, the combination of these features makes it so that porn is no longer one click and one second away on the computer.

Here are a few other things that can be done with Pluckeye:

  • Block access to search engines except for a set period of time each day.
  • Allow access to the entire Internet except for a set period of time daily.
  • Give a friend or spouse a specific URL that allows them to view changes to your Pluckeye settings in real-time.

I believe Pluckeye may be very useful to some people, so I’m trying to spread the word about its existence. I’m also very interested in getting feedback—positive or negative—so that I have a better sense of whether Pluckeye ultimately helps the repentant porn user (or compulsive gambler, or gamer, or whatever).

Oh, and one last thing. It’s currently free. Give it a try, and let me know what you think! After using it for a while, contact me here and let me know what you think.
