Of course, but a proxy or block can (and will) help protecting against
accidental 'bad pages' such as porn popups that you see everywhere, or
the fact that almost all sites with 'fun' in the somain name seem to
have an assiciation with (soft) porn.

Of course ethics and moral are better than technology for protecting
children, but I even use a squid myself to get rid of annoying (porn)
popups. So please don't judge people for being a little protective. The
internet, like the real world, can be an unfriendly environment.
