Why is this site blocked at my school
« on: October 16, 2015, 01:27:34 am »
The title pretty much  explains it. It says this site has explicit content. There isn't any explicit content as far as i know so why is it blocked?
Pm me, I love to meet new people ^-^

Usually they look for certain keywords, such as swear words and other explicit language. Whilst not huge, the site does contain profanity in some areas (such as minor rants) whilst other boards/threads can have keywords that also cause the filter to block them.

This site is blocked at my school as well. You could use a proxy to get around it but I wouldn't be entering any passwords and such using a proxy.

It likely has nothing to do with the site itself but rather with the fact that we are a furry site. We are a PG13 site so there is no explicit content here. However schools don't usually look at sites individually, they often just block any sites containing certain keywords and your school has likely blocked any furry sites due to the large about of explicit art in the fandom. It sucks that the site is blocked at your school but we unfortunally can't do much about it, sorry!

If your school has a private browser you can use that to get around the system

Though we don't really recommend going against your school's filters...

This site is not blocked at my school
But DA and tumblr are, also Facebook is not for some reason
Try not to go past the blocks
Tho I know a kid who did this and didn't get in trouble (because my school is ghetto and the teachers don't even care anymore)

Like others said, yes it is possible to get around the blocks. Should you? Not really. If someone finds out you've been doing it, it'll be hard to explain and will most likely land you in trouble. Though it really just depends on the school. Like the IT director at my school and I are really and I mean like really close friends it seems. He literally straight up told me he doesn't care if I go around the filter since he trusts me enough to not do anything bad heh

I don't think it is worth the risk. If I get caught I will get in trouble and I would have to explain the fandom to the IT guy who hates me

Ahahaha the IT guy x3 The IT guys at my school don't really like as I slated how the servers are set up... a row of computers on the floor in a room with a really crappy air-con unit.
I haven't even tried at school but I reckon it will be blocked because it's a forum... yes... a forum... my school blocks nearly everything so when you need to do research in a lesson it's sooo hard to find something that actualy isn't blocked! :fox-:P:

Well seeing as we're not meant to encourage bypassing filters, I'm not going to tell you that the Tor browser can be installed on a USB stick and taken into school. I'm also going to refrain from saying that you can then plug it into a PC and have a proxy of sorts without leaving much of a trace. :fox-;):

Yes you can get to the dark web through it, I for one haven't been on the dark web through it though.
