    I wouldn't do that, personally. It might make things worse; I know how school officials can be.

    I agree. Challenging things on a personal level can e disasterous.
    It is probably better to move in a thoughtful and intelligent way on the subject with the school administrators in order to eventually find out how to have the Skadi website reinstated.
    Knee-jerk reactions will be more harnful than helpful.

    I'm always able to access Skadi from school computers and I haven't had a problem.

    You probably are not living in a politically correct country Pushkin. Unlike me.

    Hmmmn......has New York seceded from the Union recently?

    Actually there are computer labs at my school where accessing "hate speech" is not allowed; so I just use the computers in our library. They don't seem to give a shit!

    The more multi-cultural it gets, the more pc it is. You know that.

    In my school, they do not have such a system worked out, but they do walk around in the labs and watch what kind of sites you're accessing. I'm sure they also check the cookies every once in a while, so I always make sure I clean everything up.

    So what school do you go to, and how persnickety are they about what is accessed on the computers?

    You're right....the more ideas and viewpoints, the more PC things are whether at a school, in a city, in a company, etc., etc.,........but where does that all go?
    And since you're in NY, how do the politicians view the crunch on websites?

    I go to an art school, which means the majority of the people have no or little political or ideological orientation; and if they do, it's for the hell of it.

    As far as I know there's no restriction to websites, it being a liberal school; but you DO get in trouble for looking at such websites if you're caught. I guess one could fake it, saying things like "I was looking for material" etc. but it's best you don't. They do go through the student folders every two weeks.

    I know for a fact that even if you're using it for anti purposes, it's strictly forbidden to use any such symbols like the swastika or related ones. I'm studying graphic design and the first thing they told us for using symbols was this, that we could never, ever use it, even for the purposes of putting the whole thing down.

    I'm afraid I'm quite unaware of the situation. Could you elaborate? I'm definitely missing something which I'd rather not.
