A WFXT-TV investigation of on-line filters designed to block children's access to certain inappropriate websites reveals that they don't work as well as they're advertised. "As it turns out, filters aren't all that effective and the software companies don't advertise that fact. So parents may not be paying attention to where their kids surf on the web, thinking that filters are keeping them out of adult web sites."
