"...Web Guard is supposed to inhibit access to content that falls under the following categories: Alcohol, Mature Content, Violence, Drugs, Pornography, Weapons, Gambling, Suicide, Guns, Hate, Tobacco, Ammunition" says the OONI. Interesting that sites that would merit an R or X rating were they films are listed twice.
I know from experience that the inclusion of political websites is so extensive as to imply no error in algorithm. All prepaid (read: anonymous) accounts are subject to this infantilizing of the T-mobile version of the Web, or the T-Web (pronounced 'tweb'), as Mr. Corporanon dubbed it.
'Hello. This is T-mobile.... May I help you? ....You say you want out of the T-Web? No problem! We value our customer's satisfaction and will be happy to remove that for you! What kind of account do you have? ...Oh, Prepaid, I see. Hold on while I transfer you.'
'Hello. This is T-mobile Prepaid.... May I help you? ....You say you want out of the T-Web? No problem! We value our customer's satisfaction and will be happy to remove that for you! ....To whom am I speaking? What is your address? Zip code? How old are you?'
No anonymous accounts with any ability to surf, if T-mobile can help it.
The OONI has a record of a rather interesting back-and-forth with T-mobile, about what possible justification there could be for having the Tor Project on the list. Well worth the read.
Here's an anecdotal example of the joy of the T-web. Eleven thirty at night in an urban metropolis: two people who smoke tobacco find they have but one cigarette left. One has a T-mobile cell phone with T-Web enabled. Both know there are at least a couple all night tobacconists within reasonable driving distance, but do not know where. A search is performed on the T-Web version of google. Keywords "all night tobacconist" and the name of the city.
The results - all of them - are links concerning various aspects of quitting smoking -- not a tobacconist among them.
Be seeing you.
