T-Mobile Internet Censors
It's not just the government who wants to censor the Internet (they already do, through their self-appointed and highly secretive quango, the Internet Watch Foundation)...
The day after Boxing Day we decided to drive up to Dartmoor for a walk and lunch in a pub at Widdecombe.
"Do we know for sure that they do proper lunches?" someone asked.
"I'll just check on their website" I said and Googled them, but when I clicked on their url I was met with
'You are not authorised to view this site'
We were at my Mum's home for xmas, so I was using my laptop and a T-mobile pay-as-you-go 3G broadband modem.
It turns out that T-mobile take it upon themselves to censor all connections. I was not allowed to view a pub website because T-mobile don't know that I'm over 18 yrs old.
In order to view the Rugglestone Inn (excellent pub BTW!) I have to go down to my local T-mobile shop with my passport.
Ho hum...sign of the times.
And, unless we stop them, there's more Internet Censorship to come.
