My evil dad blocked some websites to make my brother get his grades up, some of those sites are my favorite and I want them back! I'm too chicken to ask my dad to unblock them (I don't think he would anyway) so I'm looking for another way to get to them. Don't worry my grades are fine so I can waste hours at the computer. PLease help me- I'll love you forever! :thumbsup:

I can't help you, but I just wanted to say that it is not right or respectful to call your own dad 'evil' merely for blocking some websites! And you shouldn't be 'too chicken' to ask your dad to unblock them. Since your grades are 'fine', maybe he'll understand.

Good luck

I love my dog, too, but I'm afraid that won't help. While I assume that you were just kidding when you called your dad evil, you need to know that no one at BC will help you get around his security settings, in accord with this rule:

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user.

You can read all the rules here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/boardrules.php

I agree with Juha that you shouldn't be too chicken to talk with your dad about this. If you present a well-thought out and reasonable request, he just might reconsider. If he seems amenable, you could also ask that if he hasn't already done so, maybe he would set up separate user accounts for you and your brother and use different parental controls on each of them. (I've never used parental controls, so I don't know anything about the particulars.)

Good luck, and keep up the good work at school! :thumbsup:

Please post a report card signed by Dad.

Your dad obviously cares about his children. I applaud him for taking time to get involved.

No one has the authority to grant you access to a site your parents purposefully blocked.
