Currently blocked content concerns from another list:

"We have a student doing Studies of Religion via Distance Ed and it is
amazing how many times she comes across a blocked website, even ones
she is directed to through the Dept of Ed and Board of Studies. EG - a
link to World Religions Day ... blocked... a link to Islamic
festivals... blocked... a link to the Board of Jewish Education...
blocked ( though there was a backway through another site.)"

Apparently they may be getting blocked as 'hate' sites.
