Proxies at the ready guys, blocks coming to an ISP by you soon ;-)
I'm ok but its block by my mobile phone operator when I'm out from my office
You aren't blocked by the site itself but the ISP. Proxies don't do a thing if it's an ISP block, you need a VPN.
Lucky I'm not with sky.
Proxies work fine for blocked sites on BT
Thats a bit strong even for Sky. I'm with Virgin and anything they block normally say's its following a court order. Wonder if they will follow.
I used to have Virgin back in the UK, never had an issue.
Is it blocked or filtered?
Why though? This is probably the forum with the nicest community I know. I play dota a lot, so my expectations of people may generally be a lot lower.
Change your dns settings to opendns or similar
If it's a court order then it's only a matter of time before others join in .
Why block BHW? It's not even about real black hat. It's IM-based "black hat". Even then, we cannot delve too deeply into IM-based black hat, on BHW.
im sky and im on here right now, i suspect your problem is something else
Sky isn't blocking BHW, I'm on sky myself and had the same issue when I first joined them.
It is actually their security package that they provide, it's on by default. You need to log into your sky account and turn it off.
Hope that helps.
This is what I was getting at with the filtered x blocked.
You would know if it was blocked via court order as it would have to be stated and some of the online media channels would report it.
Its time BHW shld get private , people can read posts only when they log in
i do not see any illegal thing in BHW, so no reasone to block it on isp level.
I know o2 will sometimes block us when the wifi node has the child safety filter on (*cough* mcdonald's) - apparently we're rated as having adult content. I've tried getting this designation removed but the huge amount of bouncing boob gifs posted by some of you didn't really help my case
But yes, most of the UK ISP's will filter "adult content" sites by default and you have to specifically opt out of this. Sky do this by default for all their customers who've signed up in the last couple of years. Instructions for removing their parental lock are here: https://www.sky.com/help/articles/sky-broadband-shield-explained
If you find you're having problems even after that, you'll probably need to contact their support desk. Good luck and let us know if you're still having issues.
Yep, it is a filter on sky... still a bit strong. Couldn't alter filter as not mine....
Blocking reason is that the site "anonymizers, file sharing or hacking".
Lmao. LoL ftw btw
