    This list is a sham. You're seriously telling me there isn't a single porn site in the top 50? Porn still remains the #2 most important function of the internet. It absolutely has a few placements on the top 50 list (pornhub, youporn, redtube, or something of that sort).

    Unfortunately, it's pretty clear that explicit sites were filtered out of this list. Which is a sham.

    How about showing us the real top 50 list, with nothing filtered out. Thanks.

      Not everyone who uses the internet go to porn sights. Mostly teenage boys, unfaithful husbands, or sick perverts do. I believe this list is accurate.
