Entertainment Wise Blocked in Republic of South Africa
British website Entertainment Wise has been blocked by the South African firewall! If in South Africa you won't access http://www.entertainmentwise.com/
If you are able to access it at a future point, inform the SACNS, as the national firewall is currently blocking it. (The firewall usually excludes Blackberry Internet, Kindle, Foreign Proxies: however we can confirm that it does not appear on our Blackberries either and has not for the last about 8 hours!)
It is not often noted in South Africa, but from time to time the National Firewall does block websites, as our service was informed by an Internet Service Provider, the last time we inquired over such a matter.
at 05:40 PM SAST the Entertainment Wise website was unblocked, following our story.
