PlusNetTV site blocked by Aladdin

Those using the Family Safe profile will find the Flash Video included in the PlusNet TV: Dave Tomlinson Part 1 blog is blocked by eSafe because the video site classification includes Erotic/Sex - see attachment. This site's classification is identical to that of the top level site so I assume it has been cascaded down from that.
I have submitted a request to remove Erotic/Sex from the classification of the PlusNetTV site.
I'm told the top level URL (http://www.veoh.com) is a generic video hosting site that is filtered for "adult" content so is the inclusion of Erotic/Sex in its classification appropriate? Please would Aladdin review this?

I can't say I'm surprised, I reckon that one is classified correctly.

Isn't Bravo just the website of a TV channel?!
It was my housemate complaining about it being blocked, I've never visited it!
Also I've noticed a large number of websites that allow you to download youtube videos are blocked, why's that?

Yes it is, however the website describes itself as Entertaining men since 1985 and the contents include soft porn (classified as erotic/sex). An extract from the home page is attached. Another frame shows rather more flesh.

As explained in the FAQ you can check the classification of a website by entering its URL here.
