Default Very interesting web blocked program. Now it's unlocked?

I was in my computer class, and the teacher blocked computerforums.org. So I was like, bummer...

So, me and a friend were fiddling around, and I went to ************** and I put in computerforums.org iun the Reverse DNS box, hit enter, got this sites IP, put the IP into the URL box, and suddenly, I could view the site!

Why is this? I had no intentions of actually getting here, but, it did. Why is this?

It's because they only blocked the hostname and not the IP.

I figured it was the hostname. Weird though. I figured the entire thign would have been blocked.

No, my teacher is rather smart. I just don't think he cared wether or not I was on it.

Weird though. I wonder if there's a way to create an IP that re routes it to this sites IP. Or a website or somethign. I don't know, just an idea.

And now you have told perhaps 100,000 other kids how to get around a block put in place by a school IT.
