...and as it cannot be proven that such systems will ever work (it may rather
be proved that it will never work), let's best drop the whole pointless
discussion about it. I am wondering if people who from time to time propose
something like an "Internet Safety Filter" or whatever it is called ever read
magazines, read articles, are interested in how such systems work and why
they don't?

SUSE surely needs some things, which are substantial, but no snake oil like
Parental Filter for WWW.

I would appreciate a Yast Plugin for setting up a Kerberos KDC, or LUKS

Best regards
