If it is a parental control feature, then fine I am ok with it. If it is permanently on, then it's big brother.

Never gonna work. As any 8-year-old boy already knows, anything can sound dirty if you say it right.

It's a good concept, but as others have mentioned its a flawed. There will always be ways to 'get' round the software restrictions. Give Parents back the responsibility.
