Halfbakery: Filtering
NSFW tag for ideas   (+1, -3)  [vote for, against]
A tag that goes on an idea showing that it's not safe for viewing at work (not-safe-for-work.. NSFW. Get it?)

'Couple times lately, I've had my work computer system identify HB pages as being unnacceptable. In that my home internet is (apparently permanently...) down, I' m doing my halfbaking from work during breaks, etc.

Basically I think the monitor is picking up on bad language, combinations of words, or perhaps link content. I'm not really sure. But seeing as each time it records my attempts to access "undesirable" content, I'd rather not keep up this trend. Obviously I don't go and view ideas like "vagina jam" or other fisting related ideas from here, but sometimes you just can't tell what's coming. So maybe there could be a tag on ideas that might generate hits from nanny-type filters?

Note that just not going to the HB from work is simply not considered an option...

NSFW - at least maybe where you work at [normzone, May 29 2009]

I do not believe vagina jam is fisting related, but I get your point. If I were your boss I would fire you.

I bet it's just another anti-Scunthorpe ploy.

the usual solution involves beer and somebody in the IT department.

You could always just filter out benfrost and Ian T. That should fix ya for a while.

In your instance [Custardguts], it seems that even you aren't sure what's triggering your content filter. How is the halfbakery system meant to second guess what will be classed as offensive?

You could try using a proxy service like ninjacloak or anonymouse. Or you could listen to [Ian].

I thought "bitch", "ass", and "cock" were all farmyard animals - e.g. "Sally, the bitch sheepdog raced through the farmyard, disturbing the cock, through the field where the ass was grazing to the sheep field".

Does Tooting count?
-- Dub, May 29 2009

No, but Kipling and Dorking do.

Dickens are just so... 1960s.
