Help Adrienne! Just to let you know folks that I may have a job to write very often here. I had the naughty habit :oops: of writing a lot from work but I'm suddenly blocked by our Internet filter which, what is more, catalogues the site as "pornographic"! Quite why I don't know except for the mention of sexually explicit material in the gallery description, when talking about the pamphlets. Maybe the filter picks up on those words and activates. I have been on the site from work for 18 months or so, so this is a bit of a blow! I don't suppose there is anything that can be done, but have we had any problems Adrienne with porno hackers or something?!

Terrible news Baron! No we've never had any trouble with hackers or the like - only with spam, some of which you could classify as p**n, however it's all been deleted from the site and we've had none at all since the last forum upgrade.

I suspect it could be the gallery section that is triggering your work filter. I wonder if I can tweak the wording in there a little and defeat the evil filter that way! I'm afraid the only alternative aside from that might be to find a friendly IT representative in your workplace, one who won't tell tales on you for visiting a forum during work hours, and have them exempt the site from the filter (if it's possible, I know they can do that here in my office).

Dream on Adrienne, this is France...look what they did to the Queen! I'd be on that tumbril on the way to the scaffold within hours :( Thanks for your help, and try tweaking the gallery wording if that's not too much trouble.

Baron, I have rephrased the warning, I hope it helps! In my experience filtered websites can remain filtered for a while and the mysteriously become available again down the track. Don't lose hope!!

Baron, count me in as well! I've been blocked at work as well, and would rather not approach our IT dept. (They're not the most helpful for one thing) Fortunately I can access this site from home even though I'm on dial up.
