UK Govt's Censorware Blocks Tech, Civil Liberties Websites

http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/12/22/2030236/uk-govts-censorware-blocks-tech-civil-liberties-websites
(Slashdot)

A few days ago, we mentioned that the UK's ISP-level censorware
 software not only does a poor job of its stated job (blocking porn),
but blocks at least some sex education sites, too; now, reader
badger.foo writes to say that's not all:  "It fell to the UK Tories to

actually implement the Nanny State. Too bad Nanny Tory does not want

kinds to read up on tech web sites such as slashdot.org, or civil

liberties ones such as the EFF or Amnesty International. Read on for a

small sample of what the filter blocks, from a blocked-by-default tech
writer."

And lots more. Open source sites. Usenix. Blogspot. You get the picture.
