    Well, my college has a shitty network administrator, and because he wants to treat all of us college students like children, this site, among others was blocked! I'm using a proxy pass to get on here, and will continue to do so, until they figure out how to block them, but if I suddenly become MIA, that's why. I wanted to make sure and let you guys know soon, because I have no idea how much longer I'll have with you all. In addition to this, all adult sites have been blocked. I'm so angry. Anyway, thought I'd let you all know, just in case.

    If your city is anything like mine Dreama, there will be plenty of cheap internet cafes. If there's not.. Borrow beg and steal till you can afford to buy one, and gradually become a millionaire.

    For a couple of bucks I can surf the web to my hearts content for at least an hour if not two.

    P.S. I am not at uni an more and my judgment has lapsed. It was a long time ago that I was a struggling student. :p

    While I have empathy for your situation, I hardly see how this is the College's Admin's fault, or how this action makes him/them 'shitty'.

    Sorry, just touched a nerve there. I hope you can continue to find your way here, Dreama!

    Well, it is just that the Network admin has control over the censorship. He made the decision, and nobody else really understands what is going on. So, he makes the decision, because of his own personal values, that college students should be looking at more wholesome things. I think it is very unfair, and I admit, he's not the only one to blame. I just feel very betrayed by my school, which has violated it's own code without warning. It's just not cool. I'm a grown woman. I thought I didn't need people to look after me anymore, especially after I got married.

    And, HF, I really am sorry I offended you. I have a great respect for people in administration and computer stuff. My father is a technician and a NA, and that's also what my husband hopes to be. I was just worked up at the time, and I'm not totally left out in the cold. I can at least request that this site be unblocked. I mean, it's up to them, but I might have a chance. Anyway, I vented too hastily, and said some nasty things. He does have control over that stuff, and he did make the decision, but maybe there are other reasons why he felt we needed to censor stuff. Though I don't agree that this was the answer to whatever the problem was, and I am still pretty outraged, I should make rude statements like that. I'm sorry.

    No worries, Love. However I can understand his decision, and would also understand his reluctance to unblock this site. As much as it is an informative and fun sex discussion forum, because of the allowance of pornographic/nude photos this site falls under the same category as any other porn site. My stance would be completely revered should there not be any nudity/pornography here. :)

    It still sucks that you can't get on from school though. There is so much more to this site than porn. :)

    Heck yeah!!!!!!

    We have leg humping!!!!:lol

    I see Dreama's frustration with someone being in control. However they are adults.
    I would be curious to know if something happened to trigger the decision.
    On the other hand, the school is supplying the service.
    HMMMMMMMMMMMM
    Got me thinking too hard.
    Head hurts now.

    Well, I feel like the biggest bitch alive. They unblocked this site apparently, because I'm on it right now without a proxy pass thing. I think I might write the Network Admin a letter of thanks, because I'm so happy. I'm not a big porn user, though I do like the occasional fix, but it isn't something I care too much about. However, when I found out that I couldn't reach this site, I was just fuming. But then, maybe they just decided to unblock it. But, see, the reason why I was angry is not because I couldn't get on just on campus. I'm in married student housing, which means that my apartment only has access to that internet. I guess I just don't like being controlled, even in my own apartment. But, oh well. I have SF, so I'm happy. Anyway, I'm still really sorry for writing nasty stuff in anger. I think he was actually trying to block sites from which kids have been downloading torrents, and decided to block some porn while they were at it. Anyway, I really didn't mean to offend anyone, especially you. Next time I'll try to empathize with the other side before I get too angry.
