British Charities Discover Web Filters Don't Work

,----[ Quote ]
| Firms providing some 5% of the country's broadband connections haven't

| blocked Wikipedia and screwed up UK edits of the site, and also blocked the 
| Internet Archive's Wayback Machine

| have hit out at government proposals to consider changing policy on term 
| extension. The letter, which has also been sent to the Cabinet Office, the 
| Treasury and the Culture Minister, voices serious concern at the lack of 
| evidence justifying a change that seems to show the Government prefers 
| special interests over facts.
