Humorous run-ins with school internet censors

One I was surprised didn't get blocked, was when myself and a teacher were trying to identify some hybrid animals in a genetics lesson. "African ass" had us pissing ourselves laughing in front of the kids, who luckily couldn't see the pc screen.

My filter won't let me look at the current thread about Bunsen burners (started by Shannon in 'general discussion' - I'm not going to post the whole thread title in case it blocks me from this thread too !)
Sorry about that! haha
 
History teacher was having a rant yesterday about how impossible it is for him to teach anything to do with war without getting accused of weapons research by the net nanny. Meanwhile, as we are a 'posh school' we have a few kids who do shooting for a sport option who wander into school in the mornings with an actual gun over their shoulder :eek:

we have BGfL filter here (birmingham grid for learning) which i'm guessing isnt as sensitive as some on here as it really only blocks social media type pages. The internal school system does log all instances of certain words and sends them in a list to one of the assistant head teachers who has to check them.
At a previous school we all spent a good few minutes google searching and laughing at images from a tv program that had been on called "ten tonne test*cles". I bet that flagged up on someones screen at the time!
 
At my last school a yr7 student got a shock when he was doing research on the Japanese during the second world war no 1 of the school library computers. He put into google 'Japanese Midget Submarines', sir vies to say what he got was definatly not Japanese midget submarines and more XXXX rated.
Think the poor student was scared for life.
 
I did once missed having a run in with the censoring software when I searched for old earthmovers. Let me just say the pictures were of ladies and gents a of more genteel age and it was not immediately obvious who was doing what to whom but pointed the IT team to the URL in case of future indiscretions.

I told the teacher to look up upload_2019-12-10_16-50-11.png this year, not getting done twice.


(you need to look for "skeletal upload_2019-12-10_16-50-23.png if you don't want bodybuilders)

I once tried to search for some kind of consultancy (can't remember what kind). I typed the 5th and 6th letters of "consultancy" round the wrong way ... the rude word filter picked up on it and let me know promptly!
 
FYI
I now cannot read the second page of this thread, I get a pornographic material warning.
which means I cannot seven see this post once its up.
Got to love the internet censor gods
 
oh well, looks like that's the end of me reading the posts in this thread, still cannot get past the first page now.
why do people have to use naughty words?;)
 
Wondering if it's the one about african animals of a certain anatomical similarity rather than the body builder references doing it?
 
Does anyone else run into amusing censor flags during their travels on the internet?:rolleyes:

In Northern Ireland we have C2K but I don't know what the equivalent is on the mainland.

I noticed today there are topics on the forum here like 'Astable Multivibrat*r' and 'Hello from Ess3x' which I can't access due to containing 'adult content'! :eek::oops:

Not only on here but one day I was researching for a pond dip diagram and kept getting blocked for typing 'Dragonfly Ny*ph' haha.

Sorry for the "£%*3^6" but if I type them out fully then it might block me from viewing my own topic! :p :D
Hello from NI @BioBee C2K = fun vacuum
