ehhh i think your school has the right to block use of whatever sites they feel would distract you from your studies. it would be unethical for me to give you a work around.

No only unethical, but you could also get into trouble for breaking the rules.

the internet is about freedom. no organization, person, or company should be blocking anything. if the school wants to create an intranet with access to certain material that is one thing. the internet is probably the greatest tool we have right now for personal freedoms and full access must be protected at any cost.

The school is paid for by your taxes and rules are decided by the officials you elect. If you don't like what rules the people have elected to enstate, then either vote or run for office.

Otherwise, blocking content in schools provides a safe environment where students can learn. I dont agree with blocking political content or supressing Ideas (like the Great firewall of China lol), but blocking pron and adult sites makes sense in school.

the internet is our greatest tool for for personal freedoms. no one is talking out of their a%@. i did not say they do not block. i clearly said that they should not be blocking sites. why do you think we are fighting so hard for net neutrality here in the states? so what is happening in france and australia does not happen here.
