This is mostly a test post so I can say this: Playboy playmate.

I'll try a few other keywords if that's not the one.

Explanation, you want? OK.

This morning I tried to read the "Dancing with...Buzz Aldrin?!" topic at work and hit our web filter which says the page is always blocked because of the category "sex". I checked the contents of the topic and there's nothing sexual there, but the phrase "playboy playmate" shows up.

So, feel free to ignore this [Smile]

*edit*

Heh... yep. As soon as I posted the topic, I couldn't access it. Oh well.

Ignore what?

Actually, there was more than just that word, a web filter wouldn't have to be all that retarded to trigger on the words/phrases highlighted below (vowels replaced by other stuff to fool the filter...

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

My company's Web filter is a little odd, too. Since I write for a newspaper, I get all these random press releases about all these crazy things. I could stop their receipt, except that when I click on the link to unsubscribe, our filter blocks the page as spam!
