Don't block anything. Just take the log of www accesses and generate
reports for each user on which sites they accessed and email the report to
the user every day. This works best if the logs have the complete URL such
as the logs generated by Squid http://www.nlanr.net/Squid
Somehow I think that accesses to pornography sites will drop dramatically.
