Get rid of PC 'pron' and porn with Snitch porn detector
Snitch is a software tool designed to detect pron on computer hard drives.
So what exactly is 'pron'?
'Pron' is a variation of the word
'porn' with the letters 'o' and 'r' reversed. Sometimes it is spelled 'pr0n' or 'Pr0n' with a zero in place of the o. In the early days of the internet the word 'pron' itself was used
initially as a covert way of referring to pornography, eg. search engines would not typically pick up the word 'pron' when you searched for 'porn' but anybody
reading it would instinctively understand what it meant. However in modern vernacular it is commonly used as a
direct substitute for the word 'porn' without any qualification, and either
a) the misspelling goes unnoticed or
b) it is assumed to mean 'porn', or
c) it is recognized as a misspelling but understood to mean 'porn' anyway.
Snitch is not only capable of detecting legitimate porn using visual analysis algorithms, but it also uses keyphrase tests to weight files if they contain suspicious phrases;
and you can be certain the phrase 'pron' is detected because it is so often related to actual pornography, either by misspelling or by intentional substitution.
