      Does Sky ever block destinations?

      I haven't been able to access any websites hosted by Site5 today - including their own. They're not down; I can see them using an online proxy. I've accused them of over-enthusiastic IP blocking, but it's just occurred to me that it may actually be a problem at this end.

      Do you know whether Sky could have (wrongly) blocked them? Or can you think of another reason why it might have happened?

      Cheers.
      Cherry

      Works fine for me as well, I think we can rule out Sky.

      The only sites Sky will block are those covered in their T & Cs. ie-
      We have put technical measures in place to prevent you from accessing certain websites that contain illegal images of child abuse that are identified from time to time by the Internet Watch Foundation
      Every responsible ISP should.
