They blocked this forum at my workplace!  It's funny since it's the only game site that I know of that is blocked.  I think they are filtering sites out by keywords and the words "gaming" + "forums" in the url sets the red flag.  Either that or they were monitoring my usage but then I visit other sites too so why block just GamingTrend?

GamingTrend's main site isn't blocked for me at work, but the forums were blocked due to all the pictures posted in the NSFW threads.

YMMV, of course.

Ron, could we use another DNS name? I have a spare one that isn't being used.

Also, we could go with a numerical alternate. biggrin eg: 456712.com

I'll give me general warning (as someone who designs these sorts of systems) that actively trying to subvert filters at work is generally grounds for termination in most organizations.
