Internet Censorship Anonymous 02/08/2017 (Wed) 01:52:49 [Preview] No. 7971
If you are an American, you can thank these two senators (John Mccain and Fritz Hollings) for censoring a large portion of the internet and preventing people from gaining knowledge and learning.

>"Schools and libraries subject to CIPA may not receive the discounts offered by the E-rate program unless they certify that they have an Internet safety policy that includes technology protection measures. The protection measures must block or filter Internet access to pictures that are: (a) obscene; (b) child pornography; or (c) harmful to minors (for computers that are accessed by minors). Before adopting this Internet safety policy, schools and libraries must provide reasonable notice and hold at least one public hearing or meeting to address the proposal."

It is because of them that filtering software such as IBoss exists and why schools have google integrated within their computers to force students to use their services and to use a filtered search.

Sounds like you're mad you can't get to play Minecraft during Biology class.

The internet is not the giant field of green grass and flowers you think it is. The things restricted include pornography and gore of any kind, stuff that could infect the school network, games, social media sites, or anything that is not needed to get an education. There's no crazy conspiracy here and some of those little shits have even figured out how to set up proxies on the Windows 7 machines and Chromebooks, bypassing the filters.

Good for them. You should help them. Fuck censorship.

I'm not for censorship but i get what he's saying, school networks are for school and not for playing games, watching porn etc. And the reason why they force students to use Chrome is likely that the lazy admin isn't foolish enough to require users to use IE, and makes use of Windows GPO to set up stuff like proxies and custom certificates (Chrome uses Windows' settings, Firefox doesn't trust Windows and has its own way of configuring this).

Who cares if the geniuses are multitasking and playing games while you give an inefficient slow lecture, or hand out pointless crossword puzzels as busy work which everyone will cheat on. If the sumb-fucks are not gonna study when it matters, simply hold them back and flunk them until they shape up or drop out.

Back when I was in high school 4chan was blocked for CP. I thought it was pretty funny. iBoss can be bypassed if you manage to get into the default iboss account on the school system; in mine, I just searched it up on the active directory and guessed the password. Administrators almost had me arrested lmao

Either way, fuckit. It only applies to school kids and even then only 8 hours of the day. For computer dorks it provides a fun game of trying to break it. As long as they don't extend it out to the "real world" and make a filter for all ISPs, I don't exactly give a shit

School is for indoctrination. Free yourself. >>8080 is right in that it ought to be their choice whether they misuse resources and fail because of it, but let them choose.
