Question of the day (Updated With Answers!!): Web filters and how to get around them.

Mister Admin Guy,

My school administrators are fascists and block the majority of the web. I feel like we live in South Korea! Can you help me around it so I can get to your website and others - yes they blog blogger sites! Mother f&^%ers!!! I know you can use your technical ways to get me right on thorough - lickity split no problemo - right?

Censored In Brooklyn

Aight! Who can help Censored get around his web filters?? He will be back in school tomorrow morning- and we cant have him be bored in computer lab! I know some people would be like he is just trying to look at porn - why help him??

First of all dude is in COLLEGE why block him from sites? And second no one should be blocked - young kids shoud be monitored online at all times and taught right from wrong.
Nuff Said - Hit Censored up in the comments! Lets hear how you admins out there filter traffic and how you admins get around filters...

Exactly and for the people who dont want to read through that great
article NinjaAdmin found from:

You can use Google translator service as a proxy to bypass
restrictions of your institution, isp or company!

This makes most web filters see your request as being contained
within google.
You just need to goto the following URL:

(www. should be replaced with the URL you need
to go to...)

What you'll get is the translation (english to english!) of the
page you want to see... your connection is directed to a page so this page won't be blocked (would be blocked if is on the black list), no matter what the content is. HA! Take That!

The URL has been tweaked for our purposes with the parameter being
"langpair"(1) is set to "enen" (englishenglish) so the page is processed by Google but you can keep the original language of the page.

If you need another language you just need to tweak the parameter
langpair to "frfr" and you'll be able to read french pages in french! Or
blocked english pages in french etc "enfr".

Thanks Google!
