For the reason, it said, "Music Appreciation."

They also blocked Gibson.com for the same reason, and almost every tablature or music related site. Almost every image search engine or image hosting site was already blocked.

They block search terms such as "music," "guitar," and others. I think they've gone too far. It makes sense to block games or porn, but music related websites?

anyway, has your school blocked almost every website yet?
sup?

To get to an Google Images, simply search for "images" on Google and use the Advanced Image Search feature. There's always a way to get around the filter.

music appreciation hardly seems like a credible reason
Satan isn't inside a guitar pick. He's in here. In our hearts. He's what makes us not want to go to work, or excercise or tell the truth. He's that little voice in your mind that says "Fuck you" to the people you hate.

Thankfully my school hasn't blocked UG yet. If they did, I'd complain.

Many other websites are blocked though.
#14
My school blocks a lot of game sites, (I CANNOT PLAY TETRIS ****!) and a lot of others, UG is still allowed but I don't get on it.
#15

You should hold some sort of resistance to that. Not trying to be some "LET'S GET BIG BROTHER IN THE SCHOOLS, MAN!!!" type of teen, but seriously, music appreciation is an educational subject, and a credible at that, we even have a Music Appreciation class at my school (like many schools.)


They're just trying to be douches, and they know it.

thats the only somewhat reasonable reason to block this site, but music appreciation? Isn't that a good thing. I mean i understand blocking this site or searches for music or guitar, maybe its causing people to get off task, but they should put a better reason

My school once blocked MXtabs but then the music department complained saying that the students needed it for reference (this was before I discovered UG, don't go on MX it is really effin' bad + no tabs as far as I know) so they unblocked it.

Yeah, it's like worshipping Satan.

My school has a class for Music Appreciation, haha... We haven't blocked UG. I see no reason they should, as only about 3 or maybe 4 people at my school get on UG at all, so I'd be highly surprised if they even know about it.

I can get here, but I can only look at news and tabs. =/
All game sites too.
I also noticed a couple years ago that you can't search for anything involving religion unless it's Christianity. =/ X2

My school blocks a lot of the game sites it finds, but thankfully they have students running most of the networking in our school so they allow some to stay. Theyve blocked all communication websites (myspace, facebook). So far they havent blocked ug so thats good news. Im going to need it next year for my independent guitar study class. Nothing but jamming with my friend for an hour and a half

apparently,

almost every site (except wikipedia.org, Google.com, the christian dictionary (of course), and the odd site) are blocked.

There is no way that i know of getting around it by the way. Anyway, that would result in expulsion, and i do not wish to be expelled.

Proxies are blocked, Java is blocked, computer use is monitored.

Oh, believe me, there are ALWAYS proxies.

I can't remember what to search, but me and my friends were on a near constant search for proxies last year. We went through around 300 pages on four or five different search engines, finding one that worked for around a week, and then we would find another.

Good times.

I complained to a teacher, she said, "You know, It's a privilege to use our computers, you shouldn't abuse that privilege by visiting inappropriate websites," and gave me the line, "We have no control over this, this is all controlled downtown," which I know is false, because other Edmonton catholic schools get an image of a purple hand, and says, "ECSD denied." Friends that go to other Edmonton catholic schools go to sites like youtube and facebook.

They do not allow you to search for "proxy" in a search engine. If a webpage contains the word proxy, it will most likely be blocked next time you visit that site.

Oh, I know.

We didn't use the word "proxy" at all, because we knew it was blocked.

Like I said, I can't remember the thing you search for, it's a little longer, and it's been months since I've had to use it.
