I can’t seem to access social.lol on my mobile network, ever! I’m on O2 in the UK and I can access all the other instances like mastodon.design, mastodonapp.uk, etc. both on the web and through apps. Only social.lol fails to connect. Is there a reason for this happening? Am I being stupid and missing something?
PS: It has never worked on mobile data for me. All the other instances do.
O2 has somehow flagged https://social.lol/ as an age-restricted site.
You can turn off the option on your account by logging in to MyO2 and going to this page: https://mymobile2.o2.co.uk/age-restricted-content
It should load fine then!
It’s so wild, because of all of the Mastodon instances out there, I’d bet that social.lol is one of the more family-friendly ones. Not sure if O2 broadly includes Mastodon sites or even what their selection criteria is, but it’s definitely annoying.
I agree, but it seems like no, because I think I can access most other instances fine. (I don’t remember coming across another blocked one, but I’m also less likely to remember any other server than my home-server being blocked.)
Well, I’m on a mission to get this corrected now. Wish me luck!
