    Took a bit of a hiatus from the internet for a couple weeks after moving back to the UK.
    the internet is absolutely shit out here, so it wasn't even worth trying to go online. Now I just got some good enough internet from Sky to start browsing the net again, and then im greeted with this:

    sky.jpg

    Standard parental block set-up that blocks any site that can remotely be considered shady.
    Not a big deal to turn off, but it does seem like a bit of forced censorship coming from Sky.

    I'm with sky and had the same thing when I first joined.

    Nanny state or what. Even BHW was blocked to begin with stating it was a hacking site!!

    Oh and what @Asif WILSON Khan says as well, we are not allowed to view hundreds of sites now!!!

    Virgin Mobile thinks that actually BHW should be also censorshiped (despite the fact that I am using montly sim card contract)... UK is getting a little too restrictive...
