Tried to get onto the BFA website last week on another school's network. Got onto the main site OK, but then tried to access women's epee results, only to be told the site was barred due to pornographic content! Anybody else had this problem?:o

I wouldnt have thought so but then IT will sometimes program firewalls to filter out what they consider violent content. It depends on what the filters for the firewall are set for. It would be triggered by the words women, ladies or fight for example. Sounds like the firewall is a bit too sensitive

My mum used to work in a school where they had various different bits of software to prevent the kids from accessing dodgy material. One of these blocked access to the school's own website, but allowed access to porn.com

Which they weren't very happy about as you can imagine....

Yeah I mean you would think filtering software and firewalls would have that built in automatic i mean porn.com is really obvious.

I had a similar problem with a page from the British Fencing site (possibly the same one) some time ago but I have managed to get it removed from the blacklist. Content filtering is a like shooting at a moving target and so when it is automated mistakes like this happen, but the fact that it is so rare shows that most of the time it works OK.

used to have the same problem with the sabrerankings website - now OK...these things are bizarre


as for women's epee being pornographic - absolutely not - however, when a teenager...um...think I'll stop typing now.

pornographic?? no way! no offence to women epeeists, but in Guernsey they are so slow they gather dust (they're going to get me for that),and there appears to be an unofficial rule that they have to be at least 40 (they're definitely going to get me for that!!!!!!!!)

I really regret going into nusy's site with the free advertising in another language. It was for bizzare, foul porn.
