squidguard has a pretty good blacklist, you can easily add to it. Commercial
products will not tell you what they block (i.e. give a list, you can of
course query sites to see if they are blocked). The value of squidguard is
that it is free (nice) and you can easily examine the list, and unlike
commercial ones tends not to go overboard (like blocking complete university
medical subdomains because they discuss BREAST cancer and the like.
