Can I add that I'm 22 years old and starting to wrap up a college degree? True, it's their home, and it's their internet, but I think once their child is 16-18, ideas about "protecting one from an online predator" no longer apply. (And up until now, they've given me no indication otherwise. In fact, throughout my entire life, there was never any kind of parental filter/control on tv, computers, game systems, etc.)
Given my circumstances, I think the entire situation simply crosses moral lines, now- I don't believe that there's any justification my parent can give me that would make it okay to spy on the other parent (which means, to me, that the ability could exist to spy on mine or my brother's computer (he is also 22)).
I do have TrueCrypt, and I do use it, but I'm looking more for ways to detect monitoring tools on the router. If I can detect it, I can at least understand that it's happening and bring it to light at some kind of family meeting. But my immediate concern is more of a technical one than a moral/psychological one.
