    Blocking Wikipedia, isn’t that overblocking?

    I don’t think Wikipedia should be blocked. I actually want to be unblocked.

    blocking Wikipedia would definitely be over locking and I suspect many people would be inconvenienced.
    i know I would consider using another another service if Wikipedia was to be blocked.

    Wikipedia is an educational tool with a well established reputation

    I came to post about the same issue as I have noticed recently that I could not access French Wikipedia on my mobile.Articles that deal with sexual matters may contain explicit pictures (that are usually drawings and rarely photos) but that is a really tiny fraction of the website.

    Unlike Reddit, nobody uses Wikipedia to search for porn content, so it cannot even be considered as a mixed-content website.

    Plus why would the French mobile version be blocked and not the desktop version, nor all the other versions in other languages ?

    Being too restrictive can defeat the whole purpose of CleanBrowsing, just like I wanted to use the Family FIlter but it would not let me watch historical documentaries on Youtube so I fell back to Adult Filter with a less safe environnment.

    Totally agree with you, I would also switch to another service if Wikipedia is blocked …
    Of course there are pages that are not suitable for children. But I think Wikipedia’s content is more focused on informing about these topics than presenting it in an attention grabbing manner (that may disturb younger audiences).

    I wholeheartedly agree with the above comments. Wikipedia is an educational tool regarding all matters, including sexuality.

    Additionally : over blocking everything touching the subject of sexuality would defeat the purpose of creating a family safe environment as it would reinforce the drive of our children to find workarounds should they want to.

    To be complete on the issue :

    Only the mobile french version is blocked. The desktop french version is not.

    Sorry about that. Getting it fixed on our update later today. The FR version got classified as adult incorrectly.
