Is there a way that you can change the name of a forum? for instance i go online and Barracuda web filter blocks my forum, and says that it is SPAM. Can i change it so barracuda wouldnt block it?

it's probably not the name of your site... it's probably programmed to block message boards in general... is the Barracuda web filter at work or school?

it must work on some reputation system... i'm not exactly sure how it determines which sites are ok and which ones aren't... i think you can try to get your site added to the ok list but it takes a long time or you have to pay... but that still might not unblock every computer using their system... i'm sure some are set with higher security than others...

for example... i'm sure some people can get on facebook/twitter but some companies will block facebook/twitter using barracuda and other like FW systems...
