Someone tweeted yesterday afternoon that Starhub’s SafeSurf apparently blocks this site from curious young eyes.
The SafeSurf FAQ goes on to describe the service as “a “filtering” service that blocks out undesirable websites on the Internet.” OK, I can understand why some people dislike this blog, but to block a generation of minors (whose parents pay $2.50 per month for this VAS) from enjoying my occasional outbursts of profanity? I mean, come on, do you see any nude pictures on this site? Huh? Huh? Huh?
The Online Citizen gets Cassetted, but I get SafeSurfed. FML.
Worse still, I’m a Starhub Broadband (and cable and telephone) customer. WTH?
(@starhubcares has informed me that they’re looking into it – updates when available).
Update: @starhubcares tells me they’ve taken it off the banned wagon. Kids can now get here.
