Mobile filters censor innocent content

The article makes it sound like this has been going on for years but it was only a year ago it began giving me a ridiculous amount of trouble. I couldn't even research a problem with my boiler. I can only assume it had been added because of some adult film in which a dude comes to fix some woman's boiler...

In any case I had to call Orange to get it turned off. It wasn't a particularly difficult process and the whole filtering process can be rendered completely useless by any child that can download a free app on their android.

To connect to Tor on Android just download Orbot http://goo.gl/m23q0
And to browse without silly filters just use Orweb http://goo.gl/e5d4x
