hi,

Commons was blocked in my college too. All it took for me to get it
unblocked was a 25 min conversation with Head of IT dept. She did the
needful to unblock Commons. Suggest talking to the college's/cyber
cafe's network administrator first to unblocking websites.

Censorship of content on Commons: I am against censorship. I have
nothing more to add to that conversation.
