boingboing has recently been inaccessible to users in US corporate and military buildings, colleges, many parts of Africa and the Middle East, mostly due to an inept software update in Smart Filter, a widely used censorware programme. The problem seems to be nudity, even jpegs of Michaelangelo’s David, hence the button above.

Ironic as boingboing has been at the forefront of electronic freedom since before it was a website, and an ardent supporter of the Electronic Frontier Foundation .
