    i was at school today using the computer to look up a picture for my art project, and i searched Buddha and an error message came up telling me that i could not see the page due to a "banned word" in the search

    i think this is fuckin stupid, i can't see a picture of a Buddha because it's an eastern religion, but at any will, i can turn the content filters off on the search engines and get pages of porn

    even with the content filter off i'm still blocked form searching Buddha because it's a "banned word" i'm going to bring it up with one of the administrators on Tuesday (three day weekend)

    wat was the word? maybe u could talk to whoever runs the library and get them to unban it...colleges r pretty chill like that, my old libs teacher used to unban porn and drug sites for us all the time, especially if it was for a class(porn)

    the banned word was Buddha

    it was the only word in my search

    No, it blocked the page because the actual page contained a blocked word; not the word you searched for.

    In other words, it probably had - what the parental block program considers - a profanity on the page.

    Such as "enlightenment" or "inner peace" ;)
    Blocking filters suck, use a web proxy: get it from www.peacefire.org install it on your home computer, type in your public IP address (as in if my IP was 1.2.3.4 I would type http://1.2.3.4/cgi-bin/nph-proxy.cgi) and you're done! peacefire.org has a good guide for setting it up.
     
  6. Thats fucked up man. You in go there and tell them they unblock that shit or your high school is about to attract a lot of attention from the media. I bet you get your report or whatever it is done no problem after. Peace

    i was searching images, so the only words that would have come up would be "Buddha" or "Buddha statue" or something like that

    and like i said, at any will i can search porn pictures, but not buddha


    i know how to use a proxy and i ended up having to use one to get a picture
    but i don't see why Buddha would be blocked in the first place
     
  10. you're pissed because of the fact that you had to do all that shit when you should be able to google image it.....understandable.....my brainwashing private highschool was like that too....i sympathize

    Clearly Buddha was not the sole reason why it was blocked.


    The computers at my school do that constantly. If you look up "potato" you can get a blocked page in some instances. Sometimes when teachers tell us to research things, the pages are blocked.

    Once I looked up Ron Jeremy and the computer literally yelled at me.
    "BLOCKED! BLOCKED! BLOCKED! BLOCKED!"

    Yeah, but the pages that those images could have been on may have had a banned word.

    Yes, those filters are something else. The one I must deal with marks every site in existance as porn. I remember I was once looking up an author from a reliable, educational site, and I was blocked for attempting to view "pornography."

    and the pages with porn on them don't?

    I'm not arguing with; I'm just saying. Perhaps you've got a different program.

    Porn sites can get around those filters, because some try not to leave on traces of it being a porn site in the files.

    I don't know.
