http://www.suicideproject.org

The Suicide Project is a website devoted to allowing people to share their stories of desperation and depression… and ultimately of hope. We hope that by allowing people to share their stories of despair with one another, they can find a reason to live, a reason to survive another minute. Another hour. Another day.

http://plantphotonics.com

Our webiste has been blocked as it is considered "Drug Related". This website has no mention of drugs, no links to drugs sites and no photos of drugs. We manufacture and sell lighting systems for horticulture and do not encourage or condone our customers breaking the law regarding drugs. I would point out that companies such as Budmaster (www.budmaster.co.uk) make and sell similar lights and are not blocked, EVEN THOUGH "BUD" is slang for marijuana! Mis-blocking of sites like ours has a devastating effect on sales and is blatantly unfair. Please unblock us immediately. Richard Boesch

http://amateurcities.com

Our site is blocked by many adult filters even though it doesn't contain any adult content. Amateur Cities is a publishing platform established in 2014 in the Netherlands by myself and Cristina Ampatzidou. We publish articles about urbanism, citizenship and innovation. Many of our users have reported that they couldn't access the content because of an adult block. It's very off putting for our readers that we are reported as a website with inappropriate type of content and undermines both trust and interest of our visitors. I am not sure why are we blocked, but I'd greatly appreciate if the block was lifted.

http://a8c.com

A long time ago in another land, the a8c.com domain was used for naughty purposes. But then Automattic bought it. At least 8 years ago. It is an internal-only domain, i.e. you can access it but only as an employee. Otherwise, it redirects to our main homepage. Thanks,

http://britishcondoms.uk

We used to sell products of an adult nature until we realised this was causing us to blocked by default by many ISP's. We therefore took the decision to no longer sell those products, and so as of today (21st May 2018) they have now all been removed from our website. We trust that our website is now not in any way adult and should no longer be blocked as such. We would appreciate a timely review so that you can see for yourself. If there is something else you are not happy with please email me directly and I will have it rectified. Many Thanks Noel Tipton British Condoms Website Owner
