CA Parental Control Software Blocks FR as HATE site but allows DU site to go through
Computer Associates Security Center | 02/26/2010

Posted on 02/26/2010 4:03:48 PM PST by SeekAndFind

Folks and Friends at Free Republic

I just wanted to inform you that one of the computers I have at home has COMPUTER ASSOCIATES' SECURITY CENTER installed on it as part of the package I have with my recent Internet and cable service provider -- CABLEVISION.

This is the CA SECURITY CENTER VERSION 4.0.0.205

Now, everytime I try to access FR on this computer, it blocks me with the following reason :

URL: http://www.freerepublic.com/perl/go-button For the following reason: based on the category Category: Hate

I have to override it by entering an administrative password to temporarily allow the FR site to go through my browser.

Out of curiosity, I tried going to the DEMOCRATIC UNDERGROUND site and lo and behold, the CA Parental Control software ALLOWED the site with no problems.

Just wanted you people to be aware of this double standard.

I’d say that you have a lawsuit there since you will find no curse words here and there they are every other word.

“You will find curse words here.”

Depends on ones’ idea of curse words. Some people get their undies in a wad over words like “damn.”

I guess I’d review post #11 and see if you can get someone else to duplicate what you are getting prior to putting a lot of work into phone calls...

“Two Wongs don’t make a right.”. I used to work for CA in the late 80’s. Let’s see if any FreeRepublic members know what that statement means.

Apparently the company is still a bastion of insanity.

We always used to say that CA was the Ferengi of the software industry. There was no piece of software so screwed up that it couldn’t be made worse by CA acquiring it.

Notice the time I am posting this --- This is now the amount of time I have waited since I called their Tech Support line ( read my previous post where I posted the number I called ).

I'm getting music and the message that appears every minute telling me : "We're looking forward to speaking with you, so please stay on the line.". Ten more minutes of waiting and I'm quitting and uninstalling the CA Security Center from my PC.

Are you joking? No way! I feel like I need a shower after visiting the site when someone links to it. I see no point in misrepresenting the facts. There are people on FR that use curse words. It isn’t like over at DU but it also isn’t true that you will never see curse words on FR.

“How do you misuse a word like “hell?””

I like eating hotdogs hell with mustard, and relish.

How’s that?

Well not exactly. I would think that is a literal use of the word although I would never tell someone that. I was think more along the lines of “what the ....”. I would consider that a curse word.

Change the default. Better yet, talk to one of your buddies who is technically proficient.

No, FR doesn't allow profanity over here, I have never seen the S word, the F word or even G-damn, occasionally I see a-hole or the abbreviated B.S. ,and I don't really consider hell a cuss word. Otoh, DU uses all those words with reckless abandon.

I'm not sure so called 'hate' sites are called hate based on curse words, but on their politically incorrect opposition to certain people and issues.

“Not true!”

I have given you several examples of curse words used at FR. Are you ready to concede that you were wrong and that sometimes curse words are used at FR? I do not appreciate you implying that I am a liar and that I am a troll from the DU.

What are you doing? Saving these for a thread like this? That use of the term is in reference to the use of the term that was used to condemn America, I see nothing wrong with that. I doubt that thread would've been allowed to post without the context of the original reference.

I have seen plenty of people on FR using foul language.

THAT is your claim, guess we could argue how many is plenty. I stand by my claim and I've been on FR a lot since 2004, I have never seen the 'F' word, the 'S' word, or 'GD' used on FR. By contrast I have seen them used liberally over on DU. On the whole outright profanity is not tolerated on FR, like I said on occasion, some other words that you might consider profanity may slip through, but that really is the exception, not the rule. This however is not a Christian site, it is a conservative site.

I really want to know... how does one “misuse” the word he**? I mean... it is he** we are talking about here... no respect should ever be given to that word... and if used in a denigrating way... what other word represents all that is repugnant and evil... if it is not the word he**?

No I am not saving them. I told you that I did a search because you falsely accused me. My original comment was that curse words were used on FR and you said “Not true”.

I did not say that profanity is tolerated. I said that it is used. Unless reported the mods cannot read every post.

The original reference to what Jeremiah Wright is saying is acceptable because it is news. I consider the GD to the Dems a curse word. How about the b and a words used in the title of threads? Do you consider those curse words? Whether you have seen the f or s word used is of little importance to me. I have seen it and I don’t lie.

You can argue the point all you like but the fact is you said that it was UNTRUE that there were curse words used on FR and I proved you wrong.
