Not saying that this is a suggested - or easy method, just saying that there is something that can be done to circumvent.
You are correct that if it is client-side software that performs the filtering, that would definitely get around it. What I'm saying is maybe the filtering isn't done at the source computer, but a filtering computer in between the source and destination. Think of it like an airport security checkpoint. It doesn't matter where your pocketknife came from or how it was created, it simply won't get past that checkpoint. That's what a proxy server does for network packets traveling from the corporate network to the internet. No matter what operating system or web browser created the banned packet, it won't get past the filter. Hope that helps explain it better.
