They consider it "porn" or something. I appealed this, and they refused to reconsider.

Hummppphhh!

And after I've been twitted for posting things on here that were a bit explicit for some.

This site is adult in nature - there's not even a small shock to me that it would be blocked where children could access it.

So do most places with filtering. Websense and OpenDNS block the site, and they work with almost all libraries, schools, and workplaces across the US.

(I don't know who handles the rest of the world, though.)

And the fat sexuality board and some of its pictures. I don't think I'd want my nephews looking at them at their age.

You can ask the librarians to turn off the fliters and they will do so for you if you are +18 (which I am am sure you am since you are posting here). Its the law that all libraries getting federal e-rate money have to have the filthering software on by default, but you are perfectly within your rights to ask for the software to be removed.

Buuut I would stay away from the paysite board or erotic WG sites while on the library, just as general "surfing the web in public" etiquette

But, they don't, even partially, block craigslist.

When browsing in their personals, I've inadvertently clicked on ads with images attached that were really obscene.

It's probably only because of the pay-site area.

Adult is about all content, not just images - there are discussions here that are far more "adult" in nature than any images that are allowed here - in fact our image rules are quite strict. Unless of course you mean that because there are images of fat women in underwear instead of thin women in underwear, then I guess that would set us apart. But fat women instead of thin women is not what makes something adult - at least not to me.

The local coffee shops as well as the mall with wifi have this site blocked. I haven't checked at the library yet, but seeing as they've blocked off quite a few features, I wouldn't doubt it.

Correct, hey consider it a "sex" site.

Ive only come across ONE library that doesnt block this site, but they dont block ANY site.

fat-forums.com is the only one thats a "porn" site but yeah this is considred sex site by filter software. Must do with some of the boards on here, and the sexual content. Hmm.

I'd guess that it's because an interest in large women is considered some kind of "fetish", whatever that means.

Of course, an interest in these insanely scrawny women who likely can't eat a decent meal without feeling a compulsion to go in the ladies room and upchuck is perfectly cool & mainstream.

I've recently contemplated how ironic it is that the guys who are the arbiters of fashion frequently only have eyes for...each other? Good for them...but I'm not telling them what they ought to be attracted to, am I?

I used to read Dimensions stories on the computers in my high school. Depends on which part of the website you frequent I guess.

Haha that's super ballsy, all we ever did was use the computer lab to have TFC and Tribes LAN parties during study halls.

While yes, the main board for example is rarely a very explicit section, Dims also has some erotic stories, a paysite board, half-naked pictures posted here and there (hardly anything that explicit, but still), discussions about sex and sexuality, etc.

Though there is plenty on this site that is not explicit in nature, I can completely understand it being blocked by a web filter regardless.

EDIT: But, if you do want to browse anyway, just use a proxy and be mindful that you're not looking up porn in a public area ;)

While I do think it's more than just fat women in underwear vs. thin women in underwear (I mean, some overtly act out sexual fetishes or engage in more overt sexual positions with other people - which you don't see as much in, say, a typical thin-woman underwear ad)...I do want to thank you for bringing up this point. For even in some of the tamer paysite ads, where truly the only difference is a fat body instead of a thin one wearing the panties, there is a way people tend to think of it as *more* indecent for some reason. And that's just wrong.
