Please don't do that. Sorry to hear that you heavily depend on
social networking sites, and that your father blocked your access
to them. But that's his prerogative - we will not support you in
trying to make "improper use". Take it up with Dad if you must.

And with these words I'm closing the thread.



Cheers,
Tink

Chances are he set up OpenDNS to block social sites.
