Why is my site blocked by Content Control?

Sid — all the mobile operators use the British Board of Film Classification to provide an independent framework for content control, and contact details for each mobile operator for use with regard to content control are available through the BBFC here.

 

Symantec currently provides website classification for Vodafone and others, and you can check Symantec's classification of a site here.

 

Oddly, your site — nesc.co.uk — is currently showing as classified as "pornography". There is a link on the page to report incorrect entries to Symantec for review for reclassification.

Hi sidbenman,

 

This has now been updated on our systems.

 

The changes should be reflected in the next 48 hours.

Hi Wayne,

It looks like my compay site is also being blocked by Vodafone, www.onetwofour.com

 

We are a content/design agency and have no inapropriate content. It looks to me like the site has been miscategorised.

 

Can you help?

Hi Guys,

 

Some of the videos on the website are not appropriate for users under the age of 16, this is why it's currently restricted.

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

Hi @HuseyinKizilkanli,

 

There are plenty of 18+ rated films available through your site. These would need to be removed.

 

Thanks,

Matt B

Going to add my name to the list.

 

My personal blog (anarchist-nomad.livejournal.com) has been blocked by content control.  I don't see anything in my blog that would merit such treatment.  Most posts are either about my international travels, my research as a particle physicist, or my fitness regimen.  Or theatre, particularly Shakespeare.  (Does Shakespeare now merit censorship?)

 

Please remove my blog from your filter.  Thank you very much, and have a good afternoon.

 

Best wishes,

mmalek

Hi @mmalek

 

Although there’s nothing on your own blog that could be deemed offensive, as it’s hosted by Live Journal, this could be the issue.

 

I’ve asked the team to take a look at it for you.

 

Thanks,

 

Simon

Our site is blocked too...it's [removed according to House Rules]

 

We have a lot of health items in stock and can't think why it's been blocked.

 

Could you help get it unblocked please? :Smiling:

Our website [removed according to House Rules] is also being flagged as restricted access by Vodafone.  The site sells luxury train trips so I'm not sure why this would be.

 

Tech Team, please could you review and remove the retricted access flag or let me know why you think we are in violation ASAP as this will be affecting our business.

 

Thanks

Hi @Chris1245 

 

Thanks for your post and welcome to the eForum. 

 

Unfortunately we're unable to remove this site as health supplements fall under the drugs classification. 

 

Thanks,

Hello,

 

My website is being blocked by the content filter even though it has been correctly categorised and does not contravene any of the filter policies.

I have spoken to a support agent on the 11th who could only recommend that I go through the process of recategorising it. The issue is, the categories are correct and my website is still being blocked by Content Control.

 

[removed according to House Rules] is the website and Blue Coat reports that it is categorised as travel.

Any help in this matter will be appreciated, thanks!

(Edit: Unsure as to how my link breaks the house rules as it is very much contextual, but if a Tech Team member needs the link, I'll happily provide it upon request.)
