Sky Censors Torrentfreak - Not Happy Jan

umm for those who don't get the 'not happy jan' reference, it's a line from a phone book advert in australia and we adopted it

more productively, anyone in the UK should write their local member if they have not already about this. I'm sure there's an online petition somewhere but nothing beats a physical letter.

TorrentFreak – which neither offers or links to copyrighted files and hosts no file-sharing software whatsoever – is blocked for any Sky household filtered for under 18s? Really? Our news site is suitable for all ages yet when Sky’s teenager filter is turned on we are put on the same level as porn, suicide, self harm, violence and gore.

Are you kidding me?

Thanks to Ernesto’s annual ‘most-pirated‘ charts we have been cited countless dozens of times in the past few weeks by fellow news resources all over the Internet. Yet Sky users who are “protecting their children” find that when they try to follow the link to the source of those stories they are effectively informed that TorrentFreak is unsuitable for anyone under 18. What does that do for our reputation?

It was just a matter of time, censorship is upon us and now to regain the web folks will have to turn to the same sort of mechanisms as Chinese dissedents, how shameful for english folks and how shameful they sat back and said nothing when the time to do so was available.
