    Making Wordle Safe for Classroom Use

Johnathon Fienberg, creator of Wordle, stated on August 21, 2009,
“From now on, the Wordle front page will never feature images or
links that are inappropriate for classroom use. It's now possible to
configure an institution's "site-blocking" software to keep Wordle
safe for classroom use.

Ask your networking administrator block the following base URLs
and your users will not see anything that's not safe for classrooms.”
