Follow the proper procedure

Learning to live with rules and regulations

You must learn to live with the decisions of network administrators.

The alternative is to become financially independent from your Dad, get your own house, and pay for your own Internet service. Then you can make your own rules--including network administration rules.

Locking this discussion

The answers and advice given are the only ones that can be suggested in this case.

Where an Administrator decides to block a web site it is for the user to discuss the difficulties with that Administrator. Any other options to circumvent such restrictions cannot be discussed.
