That's really not hard for admins to stop. It's already fixed at our school, since they can just remove the http: part of the block and have it behave as a wildcard.

Really the only thing we can do is use proxies. Sadly we cannot provide a list of proxies here publicly or even in a private matters, because they could fall under bad hands. Of course if any member got a proxy link to give to a trusted member privately we tolerate it, but otherwise we prefer not sharing lists publicly.

Wow there have been a whole page or so of replies since I posted.
I did say that Tor/Vidalia is an alternative to finding proxies. It allows you to connect to the network by other users relaying the network to you. :)

This is saint, at school, on omnimaga, via proxy, with it being blocked :) I'd give out my proxy stuff but unless you are near my house it would be too slow for all of you :P

Also apparently my blog is blocked too.....and it is categorized as 'Adult' O.o

That sucks.

At my school it's weird, of course they block porn, but they don't even block 4chan and such.

they dont block pron but blocks newgrounds.com and facebook :P and if a site has ssl you can do the https trick :P

It's really weird what kind of things school filters choose to block. Their really is no standard from what i've seen and sometimes sites are blocked without reason. Other times sites that should be blocked are not. It's really quite strange.

By the way, for those who can't access Omni at school, under which category is it blocked?

At my school the categories are discussion forum and games. Cemetech and UTI aren't blocked, however, nor are various game sites.

Actually I think Cemetech's case might be helped by the fact that the main page is not directly a forum software page, unlike Omni's, and they have fewer mentions of "games" on the front page.

I'd guess many of them are blocked as "games". I didn't think about Omni being blocked because it's a forum though, but I guess it makes sense.

Yeah, the thing is that schools probably do not see forums as useful at all for school work, and more of a nuisance (like cellphone texting) because people will spend their entire classes posting there.

Both Omni and RFG are blocked as "games."  Ticalc, TI-Planet, Cemetech, UTI and TIBD (and that's just some of them) aren't :P
