How long before sites like my own are added to the gag list that is their content filter? I know this is only a minor inconvenience at the moment, but the idea of blocking something because it is religious is chilling and sets a worrying precendent.

I do want to complain, and so far the only place I can find information is here, so on the basis of that I completed a form here. Maybe you might like to do the same?
