If you do not help yourself, someone will sense an opportunity, offer their help, and charge you for it. That is what I thought when I read this tweet and the embedded article.
You can help yourself. You should help yourself.
There is so much information and so many resources you can get for free or for a low fee. Much lower than a provider would bilk and milk from you over an extended period.
But you say that it takes time to learn? I say make the time.
Then you say it is too difficult? I say everything is difficult the first time round.
You say you would rather just pay someone else to do it and then not worry about the issue? I say it does not work like that.
Web filtering is not just about tools and protocols. It is about setting expectations and parenting. It is about discussing and rationalising.
Now be just as savvy when it comes to learning how to be a better person or worker. You can help yourself. You should help yourself.
If you are going to pay someone else to help you, first make sure that this is about something you absolutely cannot do yourself. Then make sure that the other party can actually help.
