New hosting blocked as pornography

Postby king_of_ekat » Mon 30 Aug, 2004 04:51 pm

Jeff,

I don't think there's anything you can do about it, but apparently your new hosting company (FourHosting? - that's what it looked like in the DNS query) is blocked as a porn provider by the Alpine School District's new filter, so any websites they host are also blocked. I submitted a review request, and hopefully it will get cleared. I don't know if this will affect other places using the same filtering host, but I thought you might like a head's up.

Yeah, I know that my mom and lilcis are also both being blocked. I will see what I can do about it, and if anyone else has any ideas, I would like to hear them.

Just an update: I am currently in the process of getting a dedicated IP address applied to ericdsnider.com, so hopefully that will solve this issue.

So, Jeff, did you fix it, or did my whining to my school district fix it? Because whoever did it is my hero, and I'd rather have it be you than them.

Because they still won't let me get emails from you...

yippee! you fixed it!

that makes me really happy, since I couldn't exactly call my ISD dept. and ask them to please allow me access to this entertainment website that I waste half my workday viewing. It might tip them off to what a slacker I am. :oops:

I was a little worried, too. My district has also blocked Google, but I think I can justify having that while I'm working. I don't know if they'll care or not, but I won't feel too bad asking.
