Question, is there a way in ISA 2004 to block say any URL or domain with a specific word.  We have many users that like looking at tattoo sites, is there a way to deny access to any site that has the word tattoo in its name?

You can use ISA with native functionality to allow/block user access to web sites via a list (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;300492) which is probably not news to you.

What you're looking for is web content filtering.  Here's a PC mag article on web content filtering and accompanying product review (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,4149,1538777,00.asp). These solutions can cost between $10-$20K to purchase (not counting implemenation cost).

If, however, money IS an object, take a look at an open source solution, Dan's Guardian (http://dansguardian.org).

use web content filtering.
Add the url in the list and put a deny access onto it..

Here are the links that you could look at:
