SonicWALL rates static.infowars.com as Pornography
« on: December 13, 2010, 04:04:22 pm »
SonicWALL is a networking product which can allow networks to restrict certain types of sites such as pornography, violence, etc. Now that's fine as a service, but they are falsely labeling a sub-domain of infowars.com as Pornography. You can verify this at: http://cfssupport.sonicwall.com/Support/servlet/CFSSupportServlet/viewRating

Type in "static.infowars.com" as the url and complete the verification code as a human being, then check the rating. It is "4. Pornography".

I have requested a re-rating on the site as "News and Media" as the main site is, but their response quickly came back that they re-rated it as pornography. I am going to try to find a number to call for customer service or follow up with my company network admin, but if anyone has the time, perhaps sending a few hundred requests to re-rate the site as "News and Media" would do something. As it stands it is a form of censorship because companies trying to only block pornographic material on their networks are unknowingly blocking news/political material, such as Charlotte Iserbyt's The Death of Free Will pdf. In addition to that it blocks any images/content that normally would appear within the main infowars.com site, such as the top banner, flash headlines, etc.

Two years later and this is still happening.
SonicWALL CFS goons claim static.infowars.com is not rated because "domain parked".  Yet it STILL rated as "pornography"! Absolute Liars!!!
I'd suggest IW and PP start using a distributed content delivery network with frequently rotating domains to keep one step ahead of the zealot censors.  It is evidently clear all information delivery needs hardening.
