If someone could make a jacket of those three things it would no doubt be the most popular and prized item in all of your closets.

    Xfinity does not like his webpage.
    I've sent messages to Terry in the past, but still can't get on his site without turning off my Protected Browsing.

    Thanks for the support, kudos and the heads up on this issue. I contacted our host and hope to resolve whatever triggers this BS. I already wear way too many hats and being on top of this stuff is not one of them.

    Time for another corporate take down by the maggots so us little guys don't get buried by the internet overlords??

    EDIT: I already took down one major TV overload today and am too exhausted to do another today.
    Best regards, Terry

    A couple notes from a similar issue reported last year regarding unknown issues from Comcast and xFinity:

    "I just typed in Slidewright.com.
    I had to go my xfinity app and turn off my security feature.
    I was just shopping for some new waxing tools.
    I was able to get onto your site with my security turned off."


    "Good advice from Andy, but the only people who know why Comcast are possibly blocking access are Comcast, so if there's actually a reproducible problem (i.e. that guy didn't just mis-spell the address or something) then you'll have to ask them.
    Maybe a good place to start would be to find some other Comcast users, shouldn't be hard with 25 million customers, and have them try. I don't see any visible problem with the site and our own internal and external malware scans come up clean."

    So, are others seeing the same warning? If so are you xFinity and/or Comcast customers?

    Thanks for checking in.

    From my host:
    "I think you'd have to ask America's second most despised company (from dcpnz's PM) why they think that. Without any indication of what it is that they don't like, I can't think of any informed input I might have on the subject. A couple of minutes of search suggests false positives are not uncommon, for example:
    https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/e...net-neutrality

    From link:
    Customers Say Comcast's Protected Browsing Is Blocking 'Dangerous' Sites Like PayPal and Steam
    The protected browsing feature that Xfinity offers by default is catching some everyday sites.


    Comcast’s Xfinity internet customers have been reporting multiple websites, including PayPal, Steam, and TorrentFreak (which originally reported the story) have been getting blocked by the ISP’s “protected browsing” setting.

    The “protected browsing” setting is designed to “reduce the risk of accessing known sources of malware, spyware, and phishing for all devices connected to your home network.” This, in general, isn’t a bad thing. It’s similar to Google Chrome’s security settings that warn you when you have an insecure connection:

    But it’s odd that Xfinity’s security setting would be blocking perfectly harmless sites like PayPal. Multiple consumers have been reporting on Comcast’s forums and elsewhere that they’ve been blocked while trying to access sites that many people use every day. After posting about it on the forums, one user who said they couldn’t access PayPal said the problem with that particular site had been fixed.

    I emailed Comcast’s press department but have not yet heard back. Users reported online that this setting isn’t a default—it has to be turned on—and the sites are unblocked once the setting is turned off, but it’s troubling to see buggy implementation of any ISP-based content blocking software in the wake of the net neutrality repeal.
    It could very well be that Xfinity’s security setting is just hypersensitive and blocking sites it’s not meant to. But if, for example, Comcast was purposely blocking sites like TorrentFreak, where readers can get information about file-sharing, because, oh, I don’t know, file-sharing eats into Comcast’s profits as a broadcaster, that would be something that anyone who has been concerned about the end of net neutrality has been warning about. With so much uncertainty and concern over the net neutrality repeal, and pending lawsuits against that decision, Comcast would do well to avoid anything that smells fishy.

    Noticed a website blocked that you wouldn’t expect? Send me an email and I’ll check it out: kaleigh.rogers@vice.com"

    Anyone know how to get an the good side of the xFinity messed up security?
    Best regards, Terry
