just reading about this story, the council currently blocks any website that has links to the paranormal, witchcraft etc
The authority's Bluecoat Software computer system allows staff to look at websites relating to Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and other religions but blocks sites to do with "witchcraft or Satanism" and "occult practices, atheistic views, voodoo rituals or any other form of mysticism".

I wonder if this means that Mysterious Britain is blocked?

I guess it probably IS Ian, given some of the subjects covered.

How they can say that religion is OK but the paranormal ISN'T, is beyond me! Hoe do they differentiate between beliefs in ghosts, witchcraft and deities? Having studied these subjects for decades, I couldn't say how you tell them apart so I'd love to know how they do!

Wonder if they block the Church of Satan website? And do they class Jedi websites as being religious?
