UK is over the edge: archive.org blocked at the telecom level

Well at first that looks weird. It pings and all so I jump to incognito mode, and…

My EE – Content unlock

Content Lock on EE helps to keep you and your children safe online by blocking 18-rated content.
We have three settings – Strict, Moderate and Off so you can choose exactly what level of security you’d like.
Please note: All new and existing accounts with Content Lock enabled have the “Moderate” setting applied by default. Content Lock is only activated when you’re using our network – not when you’re using WiFi.

And this is EE censoring archive.org . UNREAL!

Going through the SIM registration, and login….

You need a credit card to get it unlocked. Luckily my Hong Kong business card worked, as always set the zip code to ‘0000’.

Thanks over reaching corporations (at the behest of who?) from blocking me from the past?

Pathetic.

  1. I think it’s because this is a common workaround for blocked sites – just request a capture of it and view that instead. Not saying that I agree with it however.

  2. Is this the end result of the digital economy whatsit they passed there like 5 years ago? Like consumer ISPs have to have provide this filtering by law, on by default with an opt out like this?

  3. The blocking by mobile companies is insane.

    I use Zen internet at home, Andrews and Arnold is the other sane operator for broadband.
