Online Gambling Addiction Help

Post by ProblemPoker » Mon May 26, 2008 7:58 pm

Hello,

I am the founder of www.problempoker.com, a problem gambling advocacy group. Our goal is to encourage responsible gambling and help individuals stop gambling online. We started a voluntary self-exclusion program, whereby we prevent individuals from accessing online gambling web sites by filtering their existing web connection. The individual will not be able to remove our filter, and it will guard their computer from any content providing online wagering activities.

If online gambling is your addiction, we may be able to help. Good luck to all.

Why don't you have FCCG listed in your links page?

How affective is the software you have on your page? Would new gambling sites be detected after installation of software? If so, how often are these updates done?

To answer the first question, FCCG is proudly linked on our "Useful Links" page. www.problempoker.com/links.htm

To answer the second question, our algorithm is very effective in identifying and blocking new gambling websites. We use a combination of keywords, keyword density, blacklists, and whitelists. If any of our users find a site that wasnt blocked for some reason, we can quickly update our filtering algorithm typically in the same hour.
