The NSFW Contest

Thanks to twitter follower @@jcharette, I now know that MollyCrabapple.com is blocked on Amtrack.

This isnt’ a new experience.  MollyCrabapple.com has long been the target of haters of cartoon nipples.  You can’t see it when you wait for jury duty in New York or work at Pepsi or surf the internet on a SUNY campus.  At one point, my own agent wasn’t able to check out my site.

I hold the opinion that web filters are for weasels and cowards.

Thus, I’m devising a contest. The NSFW Contest!

Have you been banned from looking at my site?  Get a screenshot, and post it in the comments or email it to [email protected]  On July 10th, I’ll choose a random entrant and mail them a signed copy of Scarlett Takes Manhattan, a very NSFW book.

Get posting. And, if you need to look at my site at work, behold the magic of Proxy Web Browsers

Websense also blocks me

Another WebSense block- this time from an Iowa hospital

McAfee blocks it as under the catagory “Art/Culture/Heritage/Porn”

    It’s blocked at my place of employment, which uses a Barracuda Web Filter. I’m not in IT, but I’m pretty sure the filtering is driven by a subscription service, so most likely any employer using the same censor box will also block mollycrabapple.com.

    Wait, this is a porn site? If I would have known that, I would’ve visited it sooner. 😉

    You’re in good company, my music & literature blog is also blocked in many places, and was on Google’s restricted list for a couple of years until I convinced them I wasn’t pornographic (at least online).

    How or why do websites know to block you?
    Have you thought of adding some meta tags (keywords, description and others) to your web pages to help counter this blockage?

    Or are people putting your links on, for example, StumbleUpon and marking the NSFW work type category…which is then picked up by other sites?

    First of all…..LOVE YOUR WORK!!! I think it is so cool. Secondly, I just wanted to post a little good news. I was riding Acela this morning and tried to access your site and was able to. Looks like it’s not being blocked anymore.
