No. By the time I read the post I had replied to, I couldn't recall all
the features the OP wanted. And, as I mentioned, I hadn't been to the
site for a _long_ time. So I wasn't sure what features it had.

On top of all that, I'm relatively inexperienced at that stuff and am
not sure what all is meant by a content filter. From my ignorant POV,
being able to stop connections from/to certain sites _seemed_ seemed to
fall within that capability. Of course my whole "unnerstaning" of that
is based on casual hearing of things like "Parental Controls", blocking
access to/from sites, etc.

My humble apologies if what I posted was just noise.
