I Hate my schools internet block!

Okay this block software M86 I get how you need to block facebook and all but I cant even get to the sites I need for my research i swear it is blocking more good sites than bad. How do they expect us to finish our work when it is all blocked? I have tried to submit sites to be unblocked, and that does no good. I have done it straight from the software to the admin, as well as face to face and still nothing. Some sites are blocked for the stupidest reasons such as it will pick random sites and put them as pornography when they are not, or they block all free hosted websites (But not this site for some reason), or anything forum like (Again not this site for some reason). No message boards or anything. Which as I know you can find information in those.

Why do they block anything? What kind of school is it?

I agree with the school that some websites (like facebook, game sites, etc) need to be blocked so students will do their studies and not play.
Sounds like someone got into the school's system and 'monkeyed' with the blocking software probably trying to unblock sites and it went the opposite way.

There are millions of websites on the internet and creating an entirely accurate filter for what is or isn't an education website is practically impossible. If a couple of websites you want to research from are blocked, there are probably dozens more than you could use instead. Or else just let the school know which ones you need so they can manually check and whitelist them. Or, lord forbid, research from a physical book. Shocked
