Consumerist = pr0n

If anyone ever doubted that we made consumerism sexy, here’s your comeuppance.

Several readers reported recently that they can’t view our site as it’s been labeled “pr0nography” by the SonicWALL filter. We’ll contact them later today to try to resolve it, but in the meantime you can ping your sysadmins and ask them to manually unblock our site.

Knew we shouldn’t have written all those posts about electronic devices stuffed with licentious imagery. — BEN POPKEN

UPDATE: SonicWALL tells us the only way we’re getting blocked is by individual companies adding us to their blocklists. So, again, if we’re being blocked at your work, give your sysadmin a cookie and ask them to unblock us.
