Weird website blocking problem on LDN

I noticed this a few days ago and now again that when I open "imgur.com" links then I get "Access Denied" error from LDN. Error screenshot is posted below.

Example of some URLs:

http://i.imgur.com/sazIv.jpg

But weird thing is when I open imgur.com then it is not blocked. Then I found out that it is actually i.imgur.com which is blocked because when you open it, you get access denied error.

Anyone else having this problem?

Not on PTCL (yeah - I know it's not in the scope of the topic, but....)

working here on LDN...

So that means I will need to send email to LDN to look into it. And one more thing, I have noticed it twice at night only. Because when I use it in morning (sat and sun) then I do not get this error.

This error is because LDN is testing a new firewall to block out porn from Pakistan as directed by PTA. I get the same kind of error (sometimes) when I try opening Google or Facebook, seems the firewall is young and needs to be tweaked and I trust LDN is doing that, to email them as it will help them in tweaking there service.

Techman was trying to view porn! thanks to PTA lols!

I got the same error visiting Last.fm, coz its a porn site! :blink:

May be PTA allowed porn on weekends. :P

WTF? the main XNXX page is opening up, but clicking on any sub-link (videos, etc) shows the blocked page. Are they trying to tease us or what? :wacko:

NOTE: XNXX is a pr0n site, don't open it unless you want to. :P

Great!

good step ldn keep it up am wid u

now all isps sshould follow ldn

Just to filter few results LDN few days back had ended up blocking the google results fully, other than when you search from Firefox search bar. They even had blocked images/videos results fully. Were showing same results and shown above.

When I called them the operater was not able to even understand the issue and kept telling it may be issue on setting on my system.

I am satasfield customer of LDN though, it is mostly up when i need it.
