I’ll do it, but only if you’ll help

Interesting civil liberties note: This pledge is blocked by Netsweeper, who seem to have an odd idea of what is and is not a "match making site". This means that several hundred thousand schoolkids and students in the London area won't be able to sign up from school, since Netsweeper is the default net-nanny software on the London Grid for Learning.

This isn't the first time I've noticed them blocking civil liberties sites; for example, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which was blocked as a hacking site.

Wonder what genius thought that one up...
