It took 5 days to get approved but it's now live. Here's how it works: You attempt to access your favorite content, so you enter the URL; but you're blocked! Your browser will display a message "This site has been blocked by your Internet Service Provider (ISP)". Fear not, you're not *actually* blocked - it's simply a simulation. We've built in a "Proceed to Content" button that will allow you to bypass the blocker, if/when you ever encounter it. What sites will be blocked? That's all a part of the fun! Here's a hint - we've pulled a list of the most popular websites worldwide according to the top 100 lists published by Alexa Internet, as of April 3, 2017, and SimilarWeb, as of May 2017. With that being said, you're sure to encounter the Throttle Block! Have fun with Throttle Block and don't forget to click on, "Click here to do something about it" when you get the Throttle Block!
