    I was looking through the new threads and i saw the best job in banding one, but it's filtered on the school computers.
    No other thread has ever been blocked,so why is that one? :confused:

    I would hazard a guess that it's because it contains a reference to B O O B S & Brass, and so the filtering software at your school blocks it.

    Ohhh, i guessed it would be something like that, but i can't see the thread so i couldn't see what it was.
    Filters are so irritating!

    I used to go on tMP at school... then the awful new technician put filters on everything! tMP was banned, as was google images (useless- we always got asked to find pictures in class and it took 10 times longer) and every other site that we might actually want to visit!
    Honestly, the ICT rooms at school make you feel like you're on Big Brother.

    We don't have google images filtered but we do have windows search thing images filtered. Annoying, because we have a bar at the top which i always type in assuming it's google and then everythings filtered!
    At least i can go on the rest of tmp :D

    I would say I'm jealous that you can get tMP at school... but I had my last GCSE yesterday so I don't have to worry about going to school until September now!

    I suppose if i was desperate to see anything i could just remove the filters, not sure it's worth possibly getting in trouble for...

    Oooh don't. My experience of IT technicians in school is that they are absolutely terrifying and would most likely chuck you in a pond full of piranhas if you dare interfere with their work!

    Think yourself lucky you can get on tmp :)
    At our school, almost EVERYTHING is blocked.
    Trying to get on a site to do coursework the other day, and that was blocked, what use is that?
    Tmp, all networking sites (myspace etc), google, google images, even CBBC is blocked!
    Not that i try to get on there... :oops:
    Schools are a pain, yeah, they should filter some things, but surely tmp is educational, and it should let us on! =]

    Huh! When I was at school, computing meant writing FORTRAN on coding sheets...

    Mind you, many brass bands were still high pitch (and percussion-less), petrol was a few shillings a gallon, and we had to dodge the occasional T Rex when we walked home from school at lunchtime...

    And a bar of chocolate was 3d :biggrin:

    We weren't allowed to use computers when I was at school, and they were called Calculators back then too. ;)

    Everything like bebo and myspace are filtered, but you would expect that. Also anorexia is blocked, so doing an anorexia project for science, and doing research on the school computers isn't very easy.
    At one point, when they were changing the filtering system, the techers had it first. So the teachers had more filtered than the students.

    Wait 'til you get to college : )
    I've finished now, but NOTHING was filtered at my college.
    Though I guess if you stay at school but start 6th from it may be different....
    Move to Cornwall-everything is much more fun!

    I do, the best thing i do is listen to the teacher to undrestand the subject we are doing, log on to Wikipedia, do a search for that topic and then go on tMp. never been caught once, only grassed up by my more b**chy classmates and got in trouble for internet abuse. Internet Abuse??!! :confused: I Haven't hurt mr Internet's feelings or broking Mr Internet's left arm, so how is it Internet Abuse?

    I've been done for internet abuse too.
    Except it wasn't just tmp, i got rid of the filters and went on bebo and tried to download msn.
    Luckily i didn't get into much trouble, the teacher just wanted to know how i did it and said i was very clever.
