There shouldn't be any "adult material" such as pornography here.

If there is and you see it, let me know.

I labeled a Vid NSFW since Rondey Dangerfield screams FU, FU at the end. Hard to imagine that would trigger something like this. In 80s 'O Glorious Day' thread.

I try reading the forum at school and anything past the homepage is blocked for adult content. In most cases adult content can be something as small as foul language (Which is used here often, haha).

Can these filters actually filter words? I can get the forum at my job, no problem. But things like YT, some images, photobucket, and some other, but not all image hosting sites are blocked. I have no problem in streaming vids from most news sites though.

How do the filters "know"??

But we have wifi, and if I REALLY want to view a YT vid, I can go on my phone.

Sometimes work filters are weird. I run the social media where I work, and sometimes when I'm finding pictures on Google to post on our Facebook or Twitter I get blocked with the message I can't access it because it's tagged as porn, or weapons, or gambling—and it's a picture of Slash playing guitar onstage or something like that.

Meanwhile, today I was just casually scrolling through our Twitter, and there's a literally a porn screencap one of our followers posted. I'm talking full frontal, balls-deep. Pretty happy no one walked by at that exact moment. Also, sometimes when I have nothing to do I read bullshit clickbait articles like "You'll never believe which of these celebs had boob jobs!" or articles on Cracked that are full of profanity and vulgar stuff, and I've never had any problem with those at all. So in conclusion, it could be nothing that's causing you problems. The theory someone mentioned about the use of the phrase "gear porn" also seems reasonable though.

I'm thinking it was the thread by Kumachan about this place getting boring. The first time I ckeched on it I was allowed, it had some picture of a woman wearing practically nothing if I remember. After that i got blocked from just that thread now I am blocked out of the whole forum, still am.

I generally come here while at work when things are slow, I rarely even get on a computer at home.

There is nothing that, from what I have been digging through, violates "adult content" past what the rules have been applied.
