    Edugeek or BGFL?

    We keep getting blocked by BGFL filters randomly. Usually when selecting new posts. The message is;

    Request Blocked by Generic Body Filter

    Your request to URL "http://www.edugeek.net/forums/search.php?searchid=1484857" has been blocked by the Webwasher Generic Body Filter. The document was classified as Override Block which is not allowed by BGfL filtering policy at this time.
    Is this a rouge post issue or our beloved ISP?

    I've been getting the exact same message.
    I went to log the call with Link2ICT and then when the tech remoted in to have a look it worked! Grrrr.
    I'm guessing something is up at there end.

    *Update*

    It seems to be the Security Forum causing the problem. I can get into the others it seems.

    I noticed it too and just thought it was a glitch. Clearly it has to be BGFL as they manage Webwasher. You would of thought Edugeek would be put on a whitelist, but there you go!

    Our ISP do the filtering here via Webwasher too, but have given us rights to change filtering so we can unblock sites and such.

    Comes in handy at times

    If I click on the 'Security' link in the main forum index or within the new post page I get blocked but if I click on a thread within the Security forum it lets me read it.

    However I can't check all the threads because if I click on page 2 of 'New Threads' it blocks me again.

    I'm guessing it is a post edited sometime today that it doesn't like in the Security forum.

    PS - Behind the Red door works fine

    People post known proxy lists in that forum dont they.

    That would get it blocked.
