    Well, rather than turning off the filter, as they recommend, it is better to report it and then continue to the site (assuming there is nothing that can harm the comp)

    @ Cudni

    Under nomal circumstances i would agree. However it appears that there was some skulduggery going on by MS who didn't like an article that was written, and then imposed censorship via the IE filter listings to block the www = Dirty tricks :thumbd:

    What facts is that based on? I think we're better of waiting for an official Microsoft statement. I've never heard of "prisonplanet" but the fact that 3/4 of the website is adverts makes me raise an eyebrow.

    I find it far more likely that they had an infected advertisement on the page.

    Well I can access that site fine (not blocked), although it's trying to load some flash content that is making the 10.2 flash beta crash out, and crash the entire IE tab. Probably infected advertisement.
