If you’re using TalkTalk, you’re probably not reading this, because this blog is on their filter list. The same filter that failed to block Pornhub.

The UK government has been promoting filters to prevent “young people” from seeing content that is supposed to be for over 18s, and this has gone about as well as expected (to be absolutely clear: it’s gone pretty badly).

The Open Rights Group have built a tool, Blocked!, to check whether a site has been blocked by these filters. You might want to go check the status of any sites you control.
