Submission + - Web and Content filtering recommendations? 2

lukej writes: So it's clear everyone here dislikes content filtering, but there are few discussions on how to do it well.
Clearly, some of us in IT are tasked to provide filtering for a variety of reasons, including bandwidth control, compliance, pseudo-HR, etc.

I think the available options are mostly clear: Classic appliance based filters, or the newer 'cloud' solutions, Blacklists/whitelists vs. heuristics, Per user/machine control, and broad policies, Reporting and statistics, etc.

For the record, right now we're using DansGuardian/Squid, and, as always, looking for experiences and suggestions.
