Haven't logged on in a couple of weeks, the company I work for put in a "web" filter to block offensive wbsites. How this website qualifies as offensive I'll never know. ANyone have any ideas besides changing jobs! to get around the filter?

Most smart phone work fine, but you would want an unlimited data plan. Most firewalls with content blockers have a catagories that they select. You can talk to the network admin and ask him to put this site in as an exception. Something to keep in mind is that the computer is their property and you are on their time. If I was going to talk to the network admin, I would only tell them that I like to keep up with the forum during my breaks or during lunch. You always just check at home, if all else fails.

Not necessarily. As noted, most block out categories such as "entertainment".

If this site is categorized in a restricted category then you cannot access it.
No, it's firearms.

Most of these corporate 'block lists' are subscription based and they're run by anti-gun folks.

There have been lots of non-firearm-related sites added to the list for talking about "paint guns", "squirt guns", "caulk guns", etc (the spider that parses the sites just looks for "bad words", regardless of content or context).

I am afraid you don't know anything unless you know what filter is being used.

We use "Websense" and it filters out this forum and one called the Dallas Digest under the same category.

So PERHAPS it is frearms related, and perhaps not.

It falls under the weapons catagory on our filter at work. Sadly, Kirafu backpack site does also. Anything hunting related does.
