They can't block everything they see... that way they would block even usefull websites...

Well, at our (Toa and I) school, they block content, not specific sites. Although, sometimes they will block individual sites if they are bad, but blocking any content on said site would remove access to useful websites. I could ask my dad about it since he works for the tech department there. I'll get back to you all on this.

I'd appreciate that tremendously. I'm also interested to know why it was blocked, though it may just be because I go on there a lot.

A site wouldn't be blocked simply because kids visit them often. If so, then Pogo, FOG, and stoneagegames would all be off-limits. I'm sure there's a better reason than that for Connexion being blocked.

Yea, that's true. It said something about personal sites/web logs or something like that.

By the way, you all do realize that "Connexion" is blocked because its a Gay and Lesbian terminology. Plus there is a website for it named Connexion .org.

Just FYI.

That may be true, but the word "Connexion" is found by their word search in the schools Block list and will block anything with that word. Lots of schools in the USA do this too. They look for a word, not what a site, that needs to be blocked. So if that word is in the page or link / URL then it will be automatically blocked, even if the website is innocent.

Remember to look up "Connexion". You'll see what I mean.

How did connexion come into terms of gays and lesbians?

It's not blocked in my school.
