This (unconfirmed) report from Flinders Uni. (1997)
Just for the record -- my university (Flinders) also has a proxy policy. It runs some sort of "Webtrack" software which denies access to millions of sites, even harmless ones. This includes ones which have been blacklisted as well as those containing the words "humour, entertainment" and so on.They don't teach religious studies or politics at Flinders?
