Welcome to Vodafone Community
I'm a Vodafone Australia customer on holiday in the UK, where i've picked up a pay-as-you-go Vodafone SIM. I've noticed that my thoroughly innocuous and G-rated little blog, http://markhugh.es , is blocked by Vodafone's Content Control filter, despite the (disappointing) lack of nuditt, bad language, or any other "adult" themes for that matter.
How do I go about getting my site removed from your blacklist?
Just call customer services, they will take a credit card to prove you are 18, charge £1 to it, and give you £2 or something credit and it can get removed, or go to a Vodafone store with proof of age and they can remove it for you !
Thanks for the reply but that's not what I'm asking - I don't want Content Control removed from my account, I want my website removed from the Content Control filter so that other users who have Content Control enabled are able to reach my site.
I'm guessing at some point you have had somethin on the site that Content control has taken a disliking to (might had been a wingle word months ago)
Spent a while digging and came across this aritcle in the help section of the site. It gives you a link to follow to check the category of a site and allow you to recategorise it if you think it is wrong.
From the address you gave for your site it appears you have been put in the 'Adult/Mature' category, might be worrth running it yourself and they requesting re-categorisation to whatever you feel is more appropriate
I have a website which contains, amongst other things, articles showing how to repair certain airguns. To avoid being classified as unsuitable for minors I have to asterisk out part of the word which is normally used to set the airgun ready to fire, which is also the name of a male hen.
American sensitivities are a strange thing. Try typing "knocked into a ######ed hat" in here which is a perfectly polite British phrase but which offends the american forum software that is used on this site and all you get is hash marks.
The results in the BlueCoat site shown in the Vodafone link does not explain why Proxify.com is listed not as adult but as "Proxy Avoidance" yet Vodafone classes it as unsuitable for under 18's.
My blog/portfolio website www.iamdanwalsh.com is blocked by vodafone content filtering and it doesn't contain any profanity or nudity so please can it be unblocked. I don't want my own adult content filtering lifted as this would only fix the issue for me and I have friends/clients on vodafone who are unable to view my site.
The link to the help page about finding out why a site is blocked no longer works:
What is the process for getting a site unblocked?
Thanks for your patience here.
I’m just popping on to let you know that this has now been re-categorised for you and you should be able to access the site.
If you have any problems, please let me know.
If you have any comments regarding how I have handled your query today, please complete our short feedback survey.
My site is also blocked (Link Removed) although it's been fine for years until very recently.
The site contains a diray and booking information about naturist swims, but there are no pictures of nudity or anything else which could be considered offensive.
Presumably the word "nude" is enough to make people think something seedy is involved, when there isn't.
How can I get the site reviewed and removed from the adult blacklist?
Is it possible to unblock our site (removed as per T's&C's) we are a design agency so the site should be accessible to everyone please. There is no nudity or anything on my site.
