Board Games = Porn

Posted in Daft, Do what?, Gaming, Mobile Phones by Tony C on December 24, 2006

Well according to Orange it does.  I was on the train the other day and I thought to pass the time I’d do a bit of web surfing, so I break out the Windows Mobile fire up IE and type in http://www.boardgamegeek.com/, but rather than perusing one of my fav web sites I came across something called ‘Orange Safeguard’ which blocks any adult themed content including gambling services, violent gaming, unmoderated chat and sexually explicit material.  Now I understand why they might do this after all you don’t want your ten year old to max out your credit card on 888.com or be downloading Paris Hilton’s  lastest ‘oops who left the camcorder on’ personal moments, but how on earth does a web site about board games end up of the Orange blocked list?  Even sillier is the fact Safeguard gives you the option to ‘Request a Review’ presumably so they can flag the content as safe if indeed it is, but no…

 “Your request has been actioned and the content is confirmed as only suitable for customers over the age of 18.” 

Maybe Orange Safeguard stopped them from checking.
