This is to prevent users of the rest of the site being blocked by a work firewall which reads swear words on a page and blocks them.
can you also explain why my work have recently blocked access to tinyurl please?
Maybe it's connected to a site that allows you to browse blocked sites via a proxy thing? Maybe they just don't like it. Maybe someone got sent a tinyurl that linked to a bad page and got reprimanded and then used that as their defence, so they've blocked it now?
