Can't think of any at the moment, though there's some RELATED traffic
that I might have trepidations about.  I don't know what the rules
consider to be related, but I'd be annoyed at something like the
following (which does happen).

e.g. You browse to a website, and it connects back to you to look at
your identd service (if you have one), regardless of whether you're
logging on or browsing anonymously.

I want "related" to mean appropriately related traffic to what I'm
doing, not anything back from something that I've made some sort of
connection to.

And I can well imagine parents might relent and allow IM chat, but block
the ports used for webcams and IM file transferring.
