its not that hard, jsut type "proxy avoidance" into google or any other search engine, you'll get a million hits.
schmann- you dont have to be an asshole to him, he obviously is distressed that his parents are being unfair and didn't post so that he could be insulted and flamed. having a phone in your room is a matter of privacy, maybe he doesn't want someone breathing down the back of his neck while hes talking to his girlfriend.... if he paid for the wii with his own money, then his parents have no business going into his room and setting up parental controls without his permission/ knoledge. it was wrong for his parents to make his debt grow exponentally, and to be honest wiht you, if my parents did that, i wouldn't pay them. thats jsut my opinion on these kinds of things. parents should look out for their kids and to some degree this is fine, but sometimes they loose sight of what is realistic, and what is absurd. the fact that over-protective parents are able to electronically block and monitor tvs and websites pisses me off, they shouldn't do that, but lifes a [female doggy], they do. just try to stop arguing about it with your parents and figure out a way to reset your parental codes without them knowing about it.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

Schmanman, WTF is your problem? I'm not lazy at all, uless you cal running track, playing baseball and riding 5 miles a day on my bike "lazy" and "obese". I do treat my parents with respect, and they even say so, so stop trying to actl like you know everything about me!

Oh, and I think you need to stop being a dick, pretending to know me, and go get something better to do than condradict a 14-year old for "whining."

You can go to stupidcensorship.com. If its not blocked already, that is. It is blocked on smartfilter when it comes out of the box. If it is, pm me and I can find one for you that isn't. You can try this also.

Workaround for filters:

http://www.google.com/translate?langpai ... ensite.com

simply replace theforbiddensite.com with the desired site.

Easy boys, no need to get shitty with each other. There has to be a reason in your parents mind for doing what they did. Not telling you gives them the upper hand, they know something you don't. Give it a week or two, i bet your mom will crack first, or you will over hear a argument about it because one of your folks will want to give in and the other not, then you will over hear whats going on. You could all ways bug the room, shhhhh! you didn't hear that from me.

From main menu:

Wii option>Wii Settings>move to last page of seetings by clicking right twice>Format Wii System Memory

Your Wii will be as if you just opened the box.

You'll loose any saved games/content, but it should remove the parental contorls :twisted:

Da Pneu Kid wrote:Ok, this is how cool my mom and dad are...

When I bought my Wii (Yes, I paid for it), My dad decided he could do whatever he wanted with it. He put ublocks on the web browser and all other online content. (including WiiConnect24) When I dicovered he had done this, I asked why he thought he could come into my room and mess with my personal belongings, he said "It's easier to only have one piont of connectivity" Hmmm...

In the last couple of months, my mom has been taking me on weekly trips to Lowe's, each time I never spent over $10. I ended up owing her $50 (She said so), but then she decided that I randomly owed her over $125. When I got into an argument with her about her taking the money my neighbor pays me for mowing his lawn, she just simply stated "I can't count how many times I have spent money on you." and that was that. I had to give her all of my money. Even better.

What do you think about this?


Over controling is uncool.

My parents let me do basically anything I want, as long it's legal. I think they trust me because I rarely take part in social outings in which I could do very stupid things. I'm more of an introvert.

I have to agree about no pissing your parents off. When you do that, things get significantly worse, very fast. I have seen this in action many times when my friend has tried it. He threatened them with some crap, and they were like ok, then you lose ____, ___, and ____. Then he was like sh**!! So, don't try it.
