Can internet filtering block good or informational websites?

Internet Filtering is Not Perfect

Its important to remember when you are installing internet filters that some good or informational sites may be blocked from view. For instance if you have an internet filter on your computer, your young student might not be able to access a site about breast cancer because it uses the term, "breast." Of course, there are many other ways to conduct research on a topic and for the most part, your internet filtering software will merely prevent your child from seeing sites that might be potentially damaging or dangerous.
