I wonder why Hornet/UoM is blocking porn sites?

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    I have not noticed this but Torguard is a good VPN/Proxy service which can be used to bypass *any* website block. I recommend using Firefox with a proxy for anonymous browsing as the proxy can be set in the Advanced>Network settings of the menu quite easily. If you want any help setting it up just message me and I'll guide you through it.

    I have set up Firefox as above for private browsing and use Chrome for my everyday browsing. Not only does Torguard work with webpages but can also be used with bittorrent programs such as uTorrent.

    It's their network, they can block what they want. If not happy get on a different network.
    As people have pointed out, then hardly insurmountable.

    it has always been like that i was there about 5 yrs ago and we had many discussions about how silly it is. not really the end of the world though is it. you will love oak house!

    Has anyone else noticed that porn has been blocked for UoM hornet?
    Poor you! You might actually have to grow a pair get outta your room and pull a real girl rather than having some digi-slut spread their legs for 'you' on a screen.
    On a serious note perhaps referring to the terms of use may help:
