    Hello NoFap,

    I have quite harsh porn blocker installed on all my internet devices and they don't just block porn sites but also "grey area" sites such as reddit, imgur, tumblr etc. Currently I even set it to block youtube as I want to avoid wasting time.

    However, what this means is that for me the panic button is useless, as it most often redirects either to imgur, tumblr, reddit or youtube.

    Is there any possibility that the redirects would be hosted on nofap.com or any other site that wouldn't be affected by harsh porn blockers?

    Thank you.

    I don't get it.. a harsh porn blocker should block any type of porn and any potential site which could contains porn. So reddit, imgur, tumblr are potential candidates. That's why it gets blocked. You have three options now:
    • Install a less harsh porn blocker
    • Check you current porn blocker for a whitelist setting
    • Don't use a porn blocker at all
    I think NoFap and its team has more important problems atm than host some pictures

    Well, as many people are using porn blockers, it would make sense for an EMERGENCY button to host material on noFap site, rather than on sites which get blocked. Otherwise it's not really useful.

    If you are using a porn blocker, why do you need an emergency button at all?
    - There are still many potential triggers that porn blocker will not block and besides, many people are also trying to abstain not just from porn, but also from masturbation, escorts, etc. So emergency button in my opinion should not just help you overcome porn-related relapse, but any relapse.

    The fact that I do my best to make it as impossible as possible to block access to porn on my electronic devices, shouldn't interfere with the fact that I still would like to use EMERGENCY button from time to time.

    Now if I have to choose, I'd rather have an incredible porn blocker than an emergency button. But why not have both? If you get say, 1000 motivational images - which is plenty to avoid repetition - at low resolution of less than 1MB per image, this would take less than 1GB of hosting space, which shouldn't be a lot for a site like this....

    I wouldn't really want to whitelist any site - including youtube - on which I know I can find potentially trigerring material, no matter how many motivational images are there as well.

    This is why removing or using a less harsh porn blocker isn't an option as well.
