I did not know this. Can you give me background info on it?
Well, I went to Holland last year, in June, and stayed in Amsterdam for 11 days. My hotel, the Tulip Hotel, a modest hotel near the Holiday Hotel very near the Rijksmuseum, had free Internet, unlimited time on two computers in the lobby.
I asked about it and all of Amsterdam is wi-fi, paid for by taxes. I thought it was very cool.
I then tried to log on to www.freerepublic.com and the "Internet Nanny," and that WAS the name, popped up and blocked it -- with an apology, of course.
I tried other sites that allowed html, chats, yahoo.games...and they went through. It was ONLY www.freerepublic.com that was blocked.
I tried the Holiday Hotel and two other big hotels closer to Dam Square. All the same story: Internet Nanny blocked www.freerepublic.com.
