    The title is all that I'm curious about. I remember when I visited during a CVW, I tried logging on to thedailyshow.com, and it was blocked. I don't remember the reason why, but I am sure that it was blocked. So, can anyone tell me what sorts of things USNA blocks?








    You can take my TV away. You can even take away my music. But if you block my favorite websites, I am pretty sure I am going to wither away.

    Yes. Very much so.

    Trust me, you'll be plenty occupied enough to not worry about checking internet.

    If you reeeaaally reallly NEED to check your sites, go ahead and buy an iPhone with the 3G deal, but I'm pretty sure they will make sure you don't have time to use it.

    It's not just USNA that filters it is the military as a whole.

    For quite a while you could not access Facebook, youtube, gmail, google videos, etc etc etc. They have relaxed that a bit now, but still on the medical domains you cannot access any streaming video/audio and with the current disaster in Japan the military has again restricted sites such as youtube to keep bandwith down.

    USNA owns the internet pipeline, so it's subject to DOD regulations on what can flow on there. Most mids are creative about that, using smart phones, iPads, their personal laptops, etc.
