Parental controls turned on perhaps?

There is an interesting item on the PCpro website this morning about site blocking by ISPS. Talk Talk block 13,126, BT block 5,229 and Plusnet just 2. Many sites are blocked which shouldn't be like a Porsche brokers website! Whether Tumblr comes on any of the lists I wouldn't know.

EDIT: Actually, the non-SSL link is reported as blocked by BT: https://www.blocked.org.uk/results?url=http://www.tu...

Only if you have the blocking turned on, and none of the fixed line services have it turned on by default unlike the mobile ones.

There is a question to be challenged with the wording, since the blocks sometimes imply adult content, which a business might feel is damaging to their reputation beyond the blocking itself.

No problems whatsoever.

If you want me to check some specific sites, provide the URLs and I will go through them.
