Default Is FTF Blocked?

When you are at work or school is FTF blocked by your work/school Internet filter?

Your meta tags have firearms, gun and other "outlawed" content.

FTF is not blocked at my local University.
I know, I spent almost every English class reading threads! (Before you say anything, the actual in class *work* took about 5 minutes and was easy as crap.... you think after 12 or so years they would have faith in you understanding what a noun is.) lol

At work, I am on a network that blocks everything from music streaming sites to Facebook farming to anything of "adult" nature & that includes any hosted images.

So far, even with "increased security" Firearms Talk is still wide open for me.

The McAfee at work has been showing yellow/caution for a couple of months. It was green on Tuesday and yellow again today. Not blocked, but usage is likely monitored. Eff em! I open it first thing in the morning and leave it open all day. Good luck proving I am doing any WORK at all, HAH!!

When I park by the Burger King and try to use their "free wi fi" it is blocked, but not on the 'net at work.

For a while it wasn't blocked, then all of a sudden it was, they have flagged it as SPAM! I'm thinking I may have forgot to close out and someone saw it and had I T block it. The bastards!

It's blocked at my company's standard proxy server:

Quote:
Your request for access to:

"http://firearmstalk.com/"

From IP address 13.xxx.x.xxx

was denied by the content filter because it is categorized as:

"Weapons"

You have just tried to access a web site that is not in compliance with Xerox's policies. Xerox restricts access to certain categories of sites which fail to meet the criteria it has established related to risk management, regulatory issues, legal liabilities, network integrity, productivity and offensive materials. This categorization is from a third party subscription service.
Fortunately, there's a different proxy I can go through to get access OK.

It was at my old job. At my current job I don't have internet access while at work.
