Omnimaga blocked in school
« on: June 15, 2014, 04:28:12 pm »
For some reason, Omnimaga is blocked in my school, but Cemetech is not.
Is there any reason that this happened? I think It's the swearing, but I'm not sure.

The school decided omni was off-limits, could be anything.

We don't swear over here (not much, anyways). Probably listed under gaming-related web sites. Not much you can do about it.

Yeah swearing is kinda rare here even if we do not censor it, although it could just be 1 post or two. It's most likely due to the many games.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

I don't know then. Our school blocks a ton of stuff. I was browsing on cemetech once and page 3 of a topic was blocked, while all the others weren't :P

If they block based on page content, I wonder if proxies won't be blocked too? The filter could detect what's on the page and the proxy frame, right?
