Commons was blocked in my college too. All it took for me to get it
unblocked was a 25 min conversation with Head of IT dept. She did the
needful to unblock Commons. Suggest talking to the college's/cyber
cafe's network administrator first to unblocking websites.
Censorship of content on Commons: I am against censorship. I have
nothing more to add to that conversation.

and I don't think chapters should have a say
on things like these,
especially when they put a big disclaimer "We are not responsible for
content", they loose the right to talk as chapter.
Say what? There two separate things here.
1. Chapter's are indeed not responsible for content - that holds true
for *everyone* except the people who post content.
2. That a Chapter is not responsible for content, by design, does not
mean they lose any right to speak as a Chapter or otherwise especially
with respect to things a community can take a stand about - the
personal image filter being one of them. A Chapter that is the voice
of a community can do many things with respect to content.
I don't see the two positions as being immiscible.
