Mongoose being blocked by Orange

Postby PhilHibbs » Tue Jun 15, 2010 3:52 pm

Orange Safeguard has started blocking Mongoose forums on my iPhone, because they don't know if I am over 18 or not, and they think that this forum is only suitable for adults.

So tell Orange that they need to unblock it?

I've done that now, I tried to explain that this web site should not be blocked at all but they didn't seem to understand, they just kept saying "get them to call Orange to have their account unlocked".

Your ISP should not be prefiltering your content, that's all a little bit 1984 for my liking.

Riiight. I think I might need to cross Orange off my list of possible phone suppliers when I upgrade in a couple of weeks.

Orange Safeguard is the anti porn filter to stop U18's getting corrupted.

Sadly it stops so many other sites. UK Roleplayers for awhile was also blocked.

Call Orange Customer Services from your handset and they will turn it off.

Barring a major buyout of my phone provider, I doubt I'll voluntarily hand over control over where I go on the internet to a company which identifies itself with rotting fruit.
