That seems to indicate that the blocking is done if the site itself contains blocked words, not just its name, but to be honest, I don't really know.
I just put the letter ‘a’ into the blocked sites/keywords and everything was blocked, including http://www.bbc.co.uk which doesn’t have an ‘a’ in its url. I also tried 5 ‘a’s’ as a control, so your assumption is correct, Isitme. Sites are blocked on content as well as url, meaning I will have to be a little more specific about what I block.

The Problem here, of course is that if I try to block a site and a security site mentions that site in an article I want to read, I probably won’t be able to access it. I am sure my old Netgear didn’t work like that. So it seems this is a Sky configuration, presumably to save us from ourselves!
