BC rules clearly states

"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. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences."

You can read the entire message board rules here:

If you know "its probably not the best thing to ask" then why ask it?
Your school has the filters in place for a reason.

I echo Queen-Evie's words.

Anine I'm not fussing at you. :thumbsup:

I ask you to please respect the restrictions placed on the systems in your school. As a school IT admin myself, those blocks are put into place for many reasons - including some mandated by federal law. Your school has to protect you, your classmates, their networks, and their bandwidth. I'm sorry, but that is the way it is.

Thanks you for your understanding. This topic is now closed.
