WorldNetDaily no longer is being blocked for “hate and violence” by the software program NetNanny, according to ContentWatch.com.
WND readers who complained to ContentWatch Inc about the blockage received an e-mail stating the company “has made the necessary changes to our Net Nanny and ContentProtect programs to ensure that www.worldnetdaily.com is not blocked for Hate and Violence.”
“As long as all updates are done for the product the end user will not receive this message,” the e-mail said.
ContentWatch.com a significant operator in the filtering industry, about which WND readers have complained multiple times already.
After the first complaint, the company promised to reconfigure algorithms in order for WND to be accessed. When told of the second episode, spokesman Scott Cleghorn said he had checked, and his version of the NetNanny program allowed access to WND.
He said a possibility was that the software that was installed might not have had the most recent updates. He also said he was checking whether the algorithm corrections had been applied to both WND.com and WorldNetDaily.com addresses.
Earlier this year, WND finally resolved a blocking situation involving the military provider that makes Internet services available to U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine bases worldwide.
The U.S. Navy launched an investigation into blocking of WND at WND’s request after the news site received a flood of e-mails from readers.
An undefined “security” issue between the web-hosting location WND uses and the Navy computer existed later was resolved.
