Memory Hole filtered

That's what I've read in Boingboing and Spitting-Image
This seems to be the message they get when trying to connect to the site:
Access Denied (content_filter_denied)
Your request was denied because of its content categorization: "Extreme;Politics/Religion". For assistance, contact your network support team.

Censorship has never been a god friend of liberty, and that's a fact.

If there's any American soldier who is reading this and want to get to Memory Hole and is stuck in that message I would sugest to try any of these things:
 - Use Google translator as proxy
 - Use Altavista translator as proxy
 - Use any other online translator such as Systran or Prompt
 - Use a proxy manually. The address you should place in the browser will look like this:
http://proxy_ip:proxy_port:www.thememoryhole.org You can get list of proxies here or in Government Security among others.
 - Use an online proxy tool such as Megaproxy

Using any of the links above you should be able to browse The memory Hole without problems.

Edit: I have been reported that JAP also avoids this filter (and also that some of the translators listed above don't get through the filter).
Although I'm pretty sure this won't work as the firewall is gonna block the url when it is processed, try the undotted ip of the web http://3514742952/ (the original ip is 209.126.184.168)

Probably the only ones that will work are the Google and Altavista translators. I'm inside a gov't firewall and get a message similar to the ones the servicemen get when I try the other proxys mentioned. The difference is that the content categorization is "Proxy avoidance"

It sounds like the filter being used is Websense (they use the term 'proxy avoidance' to describe the blocked group that includes anonymizers and translators). I've yet to find an easy way around it that will provide full access, but one of the things that works most consistently for getting around these kinds of gateways is to look at a site's Google cache.

Another way is to use AOL. Just select “isp/lan connection” in the location drop down menu.

Try also The Onion Router.

Onion router is US Navy. Not the most secure place to pipe your IP traffic through!!! The online translators are also not secure - your IP is forwarded through them and a record is kept. If you are desperate to see sites, get a PGP key (4096), get an encrypted mail box (hushmail.com), a friend in the states and get them to encrypt and send you the pages of your favourite sites.

Eh, from where I'm sitting on LSA Anaconda...

Systems designated for 'official work' are pretty heavily filtered. If, however, you go visit one of the internet cafés, there's little if any filtering going on.
