This is a post about SEX, filter me out, sucker!

Last week, a reader came whining about one of our posts getting blocked by the filter at school. We care about our readers so much that we offered to sort the problem out for him. We first thought that it might only be a technical problem and our IT team is ready help on that; so we asked for a screenshot:


No wonder our reader was that upset about not able to read our post once it came out; it's the debut post by our hot chick Bambi Cherryboom for Christ's sake! If I were him, I'd have thrown a punch at the computer and burn the whole place down! Our IT team checked and found that the filter at his school is this wicked firewall called NetProtect, a CUHK tailor-made firewall application for schools and SMEs. The IT team said there's nothing much they can do about that, and they suggested having the editorial committee to look at the blocked contents and check for strings that the NetProject does not like. (You can now imagine the corporate management at the Libertines Pub...)

The editors hence checked word by word Bambi's post. The editorial committee is of the opinion that Bambi's post is more educational than pornographic. There're fine pieces of advice on how a woman should treat her body and sexuality. We had a hard time finding out the essential difference between Bambi's post and this educational material, only that Bambi's post is hundreds times more interesting. Words like "fuck" didn't even exist in her post. We really have no clue why the great NetProtect should filter us out. We're frustrated.

Is it because of the title "Why sex can boost your luck"? Are they worrying that their students will go fucking like rabbits after reading that, in order to boost their luck? Or is it merely about the word "sex"? We want to conduct this little experiment:

Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex Sex

Readers, tell me if this post is banned. We're also interested in knowing if we're banned in other occasions as well, write me or comment to this post. We want you to be able to read us wherever you may roam!

  1. It looks like a very crude filter that picked up on "sex" in the URL. Change that (easy for your IT guys to do I'm sure) and you may well be fine.
