The Chaos Computer Club is a large German non-governmental organisation of IT security experts. What this means and why this should be public to everyone is best described by the following quote of the related Wikipedia article; "In general, the CCC advocates more transparency in government, freedom of information, and the human right to communication. Supporting the principles of the hacker ethic, the club also fights for free universal access to computers and technological infrastructure as well as the use of open-source software." The Guardian calls the CCC "…one of the most influential digital organisations anywhere, the centre of German digital culture, hacker culture, hacktivism, and the intersection of any discussion of democratic and digital rights". This shows that the CCC is an important German and European NGO which provides verified information which may be relevant to people researching simple issues like freedom of information or freedom of communication. A website advocating freedom while sharing verified and often ground-breaking research should be public to everyone.

I think this site had no SSL certificate and this caused a problem but it should be fine now. www.echosand.co.uk seems fine but www.echosand.com is the same site on the same server so there shouldn't be a reason it has been blocked. Please contact me if you need more details.

This site is a personalised gift website, there is no adult material whatsoever and is suitable for all ages so no reason for it to be blocked by BT

Hello, this site is for free use and sharing for comics and comic related files. This does not harm children under the age of 18. Please could you kindly remove the block from your system so users using your Broadband services can resume reading comics. Thank you very much for your time.

My site is NOT an adult material site, we only sell vaping products and I am aware that many of my competitors sites are not blocked in the same way as my website is.

Dear Sir, I am the owner and webmaster of - www.heritageanddestiny.com - and a Virgin customer for the past few years. From around 12 noon today the website has been blocked - for no reason - as far as I can tell. So I cant update it - or even look at it. I can't understand why Virgin would want to block my website which I've hosted for many years. If you could please unblock it asap that would be most helpful. Thanks Mark Cotterill, Heritage and Destiny, webmaster and editor. 40 Birkett Drive, Preston, PR2 6HE Tel. <phone removed>
