    Does this site get through your filter?

    Can anybody check whether this site (for Forensic Science courses at the Uni I work for) gets through your filters for me please?

    http://www2.hud.ac.uk/sas/forensic/index.php

    I'm wondering whether the entries in the navigation links to pages about "Drugs Crime", "Firearms Crime", "Abuse of Harmful Substances" and "Sexual Offences" (all perfectly innocent pages about the things you can detect with forensic science) in the Research section might cause filters to block it if they see several links to things which might possibly be dodgy together?

    Obviously this is the sort of site which sixth form students could legitimately need/want to access, so it would be a problem if filters blocked it!

    Cheers

    Steve

    RM SafetyNet lets it through. I've worked my way round several pages, but haven't hit any problems

    Ours blocks it on banned phrases! Guess we're strict

    I'll add it to our exceptions list though - much better to be too strict than to be too lax

    Accessible through both our internal IPCop proxy server and our ISP's "filtering" system.

    Yes, but I've been nice and already allowed the TLD .ac.uk - no doubt will be stung by that some day.
