Twice this week I've been blocked from BCUK, nothing sinister just thought I would share.

I should imagine key words such as knife, gun, hunting etc will upset a few of the access control services. :(

Yep, I've previously been blocked by automated services that equate "bushcraft" with "weapons" although the system seems to have got better lately. Orange (phone network) used to ask for proof of being over 18 to access BCUK.

It now works the opposite way to that in the UK. Your internet access is filtered unless you request that the filter is switched off:

I think we are looking at two specific and different things. One is filter software applied by a company to restrict access to certain content in the work place (or other public building). The other is a responsibility imposed by government on ISPs. This is the former

Work/public sector access is restricted, same as hospitals. Courts in the UK (and the USA) block some torrent sites but it never works.

Indeed but I was responding to Santaman's post.
