I tried to log in today from a private club, and got back the following error, which I have never before seen,

eek, porn!

I think the error page identified the censoring service as being provided by Sonicwall. If anybody has friends there, perhaps ask them to expedite having this fixed. Also let them know how to spell "inappropriate," as they seem to have failed to do it correctly on their own.

    To be clear, I submitted a request that they reconsider before I posted here. And nothing will ever stop me from using Mathematica to render my sweet, sweet algorithmic porn. – Michael Stern Jan 25 '14 at 13:51

    I got that notice as well. What in our discussion might have triggered their bot to have misclassified this site in the first place? My best guess is all the discussion of Head[] and Sin[]. – Michael Stern Jan 26 '14 at 3:18

    @rasher On this site, there's a wizard, a Celtic goddess and a crazy Byzantine general performing ritualistic toad and cat sacrifices (actually, the toad killings might be more for pleasure than a ritual...). Cult/Occult seems more than appropriate =) – rm -rf Jan 29 '14 at 18:31

    @wxffles Don't forget ForwardBackward, Reverse, FinishDynamic, HumpDownHump (and many more gems in inner contexts) :D – rm -rf Jan 29 '14 at 18:37
