So Much For Freedom!

A car's dealership free wifi have nothing to do with freedom , they are a private business and are entitle to restrict the use of the wifi they are providing for.

    Well, honestly, if you want to sit there and surf the net for porn and it isn't within the eyesight of a kid or some other patron at the dealership, why should they care what you look at while you are being held hostage in their waiting room waiting for your car to be fixed? 

     

    My local library used to block portions of Craigslist, and one of the areas blocked was the "general community" which was really 'G" rated, but they allowed the disgusting personal ads that often time had graphic X-rated pictures attached to them.  It is just some idiot arbitrarily deciding what gets blocked and what doesn't.

        A lot of companies have access policies that restrict where you can go while using there internet source. Myself i have seen it as well out in the oilfield.

        I put end to issue without having to use a vpn and proxy. i have hotspot internet thru my personal phone so i have internet anywhere. Maybe you should concider the same thing. I can use mine for any device i have including my PS3, PC etc.

        It may not be the individual companies that set the restrictions, but it may be the Internet Provider that they use.

            The same thing happens to me at work where some sites are blocked.  I can't access LP directly if I type in the web address, but I can get there when I Google LP and click on the LP link. 

            It also helps if... say you're using an iPhone or iPad... saving LP as an app icon on your home screen.  I'm always able to get on that way.

            Keep it simple
