Yesterday evening, I was in England on a coach to Heathrow, with free wifi. So I browsed to http://orafaq.com, no problem. But as soon as I went to http://orafaq.com/forum, I was blocked, with the message: "Orange Safeguard has classified this page as only suitable for people over the age of 18." I hope none of you are children.

Smile Would love to know the logic behind that. Only thing I can think of would be swearing, which there isn't much of but it's happened a few times when people have got upset, usually with Blackswan or Michel.

I do not think the "filter" at the airport could possibly scan the entire site (it would take too long). I am guessing that part of someone's name who is part of "logged in users list" might have part of an expletive. Many years back a post I made about Alfred Hitchcock on a message board was censored because of Alfred's last name. Poor AI on that site.
