    What do you think of my new website? It's a special kind of site that can get around web filters at schools and businesses and unblock websites. It can also be used in countries such as China and Iran where the government blocks many harmless websites.

    It's called Unblock Utopia and I worked hard on the design. What do you think of it? I am constantly trying to improve my work based on feedback from others.

    Well sleepy....I'm gonna have to stew on this one for a while as the implications of this device may have some ethical concerns for me and I'm never to sure if my brain has been washed or not That being said...The site seems ok, simple, direct and to the point with no fluff. Keep it up!

    I think ethically it has some issues (such as getting around school filters ... taxpayer money should not be used by horny teenagers to browse porn sites), but I'm not a lawyer.

    Design-wise, I like it except for the ads. When it first loaded, I saw the blue, then the buildings, and then lots of tiny text in the middle of the page. Then I actually read it and realized that there was just a paragraph of text above it, and that ads took up more than 50% of the content of the page. I think that seems tacky.

    I like the fact that it works - for the moment at any rate, it happily runs through both Websense and the Saudi firewall...

    Thanks for the feedback everyone.

    Many people do not realize that proxy sites aren't used for porn most of the time. Myspace and other social networking sites account for a large majority of sites viewed using my proxies (I have many of them).

    I know the ads aren't great, but they're good for a proxy site. Some proxy owners fill their pages from top to bottom with ads and use pop-ups. That just makes me go crazy! I have to put ads up so I can pay for my server and make a profit to help support myself.
