Last weekend I wrote about the filter that Korean Air’s JFK Lounge had on their wifi network. Basically when visiting any mainstream gay website (even sites like hrc.org) you’d get the following message:
The web page is blocked because it violates network policy.
Reason: Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual – Web pages that cater to or discuss the gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender lifestyle.
Having a filter like that in the US in 2014 is just ridiculous, plain and simple. Ultimately I wasn’t sure if it was intentional or just a (horrible) oversight.
Well, based on a Tweet I received from Korean Air, it looks like they’ve fixed this issue:
Thank you all. We have checked with our lounge internet provider and fixed the issue. /CB
Kudos to them for getting this fixed so quickly!
