    CA blocked but dA allowed??? WTF MAN

    My young friend says that dA is not blocked in his school, and i believe the kids there use it to find porn.

    I was at work and CA is blocked, marked as entertainment and nudity.
    dA is not blocked though. WTF is this shit. FIX IT.

    I can get onto dA and see a full blown crotch, but i can't come to CA and see some impressively rendered titties. I think something is very wrong here. (I just wanted to see the CHOW really.)

    Awesome artists get rich. You guys just don't love art enough to get rich. Maybe if you cared about money more you might have more motivation to get awesome.

    Depends what you're studying at that school... If you're in an art school then fair enough, complain to the staff about it. If you're looking that stuff up in math or english class... then shut the browser and do some math / english work...

    I understood when dA was locked down when i was in college doing art, and CA allowed, that made sense. But i'm at work and it's the opposite.

    And there's nothing i can do about it, it's frustrating.

    I'm on my break. My break serving horrible customers and all i want to do is sit back and look at some artwork and read fun fun art related stuff. This a Block is in place stopping me doing so.

    It's depressing that i'm at work to begin with.

    y dont you use a proxy site such as:

    http://hidemyass.com/

    just use it as u would any search engine and it will stop you getting blocked from websites.

    Many work places block proxy avoidance. It also depends on what engine they're using for blocks. If some places like websense look for indexed words you can find certain sites blocked because of it.

    Of course there are things like OperaTOR where you can put on a flash drive.

    Hmmm...it's like they'd do this just to throw a person off so that person would give up and get back to work. O_O

    That would work on me. XD

    Why don't you just draw on your break instead (don't shoot me). It's a very productive form of escapism.

    Are you kidding? The proper course of action of surfing while at work is to update your facebook with how you're gonna get smashed and shitfaced and letting everyone know how much time you spent on Farmville.

    I think it's just the .com and .org difference. I couldn't log on to CA.org from the hospital so I just assumed it was the .org.

    Funnily enough i didn't check 4chan but i wouldn't be surprised if it worked.

    Facebook works, but i hate facebook.

    I'm working at McDonalds lol, and i tried drawing during my break but it's very annoying getting my sketchbook and pencils out just to have to put them back, or for people to be like "Oh you draw, can i see!" Then start talking to me while i'm trying to draw.

    Can't the leader just change the thingy on the site. Remove the nudity and entertainment bit?
    Seriously, how does the type of nudity that CA offers benefit anyone in a sexual way? Is someone REALLY going to come here to see naked people?

    Get used to the annoyance. I got out and do on the field sketching because I need to draw from life. I get headphones it helps, even if I'm not listening to music headphones for the ones gifted with common sense tend to equate to "person doesn't want to be bothered".

    I'm sorry you got hit with the nudity keyword but why are you arguing with us to remove it by complaining about associating it with sex. Talk to your Manager if it's that important to surf CA while working at McDonalds. Tell him or her how nudity isn't sex. Tell them how their internet you're using on your break is cramping your style.

    Maaaaaaaaaan, these people are managers at McD's. They don't care about anything other than making sure we work our shifts.
    It's not too big a deal really, but i've lost the drawing routine i had in place because of them. Thankfully uni will start and i can just forget about that horrid place and their stupid blocking system.
