It appears trend micro has this web site listed as "adult content" and as such it's blocked from many public access networks.

Considering several of us here at ATS act more like school-children this is
surprising.Do you have any link to prove your point please?

If you are using Trend Micro at home, you should be able to whitelist this site.

If you are using Trend Micro at work - well, you probably should not be viewing this site at work.

Anyone who needs protection from this site ... is probably pretty well served by Trend Micro. -snicker-

Interesting nonetheless. I wonder what their 'real' motivation in blocking this site is. When I'm surfing ATS from my iPad, I occasionally take some wicked blasts from what must be advertisements ... but even those don't throw me into an adult content site.

It says "Safe", but it does say that this site is categorized as "Adult / Mature Content", "News / Media" and "Newsgroups / Forum".

I think I would consider this site for Adults, but probably not as extreme as that category usually includes.
I have seem some avatars that I would not consider safe-for-work. It's possible that these images, or the language in the Mud Pit, are what triggered it.
There have been some threads regarding "pizza" recently that likely contain language that could trigger that category.
Discussions of some news stories could also trigger that category.

Around 2011 I didn't have Internet access and could only get online from the public library for a few months - and encountered the same thing there.

Those must be some oversensitive parents!

Hope their kids survive when they're let out of the home-school cult compound.

Wait a minute, can one still say "black-listed"?

Shouldn't that be "grey-listed", or something?

Well, black-listed websites matter too.

I think the category is actually appropriate.

Trend Micro allows you to set the categories that you want to block.
I would not recommend this site for children, so I think it makes sense to put it in that category.

I thought ATS was supposed to be for something like ages 13 and up, not 18 and up.

ATS bans pornography and even profanity:
"Profanity: You will not use profanity in our forums on the Websites, and will neither Post with language or content that is obscene, sexually oriented, or sexually suggestive nor link to sites that contain such content."

So what is on ATS that teens shouldn't be able to see? Nothing I can think of. If you put it in terms of TV ratings it would be something like the TV14 rating:

"This program contains some material that many parents would find unsuitable for children under 14 years of age." Why they picked 14 instead of 13 I don't know but 13 and 14 are very close.

I think to describe it as unsuitable for pre-teens would be more appropriate than to describe it as unsuitable for anybody less than 18 years old.

Whoa. I thought all the T&C's were in place to make this site accessible to little Billy and Sally while at the computer lab in school? And to Mr. Joe Normal while he's at work?

It's an apartment complex that is mostly student housing, and it's only on the windows machines. The Apple machines work fine. I just thought it was strange. It doesn't affect me because I'll just use a proxy server if I need to. I guess it could be on their server.

If it's a college network, that would explain it.

If it is only happening on Windows, you can try something, but you did not hear it from me.

Try using Firefox instead of IE and disable the Trend Micro add-on, if you are able to.

If all the Anti-Virus and Protection programs had done this before the election, Hillary might have won?

Simple solution. Whitest it.


What is the OP waiting for?

I remember when Trend Micro blacklisted itself as malware, taking down our server.

Never trusted it from then on.
