Nanny in the Sky

Sky is filtering porn by default.  Watch out Scunthorpe Rovers FC!!  The Nanny State rolls on.
Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: Nanny in the Sky

i was with Sky until i left last December, i remember that they did turn the filter on temporarily for everybody last year by 'accident' i think as google was looking rather clean for a few days, the majority dont seem to want them, there pretty pointless anyway since they can be easily circumnavigated such as it is with blocking torrent / p2p sites, i decided to move to a smaller isp to avoid all this nonsense
