New HTTP Status To Include Censorship Code

By | June 19, 2012 | 3 Comments

New HTTP Status To Include Censorship Code Tim Bray, the co-creator of the XML markup language, has suggested a new error code for the web censorship, which should inform users that their content is being blocked.

Described as “A New HTTP Status Code for Legally-restricted Resources” it should display the following details:

Code: 451
Description: Unavailable for Legal Reasons

According to a proposed draft, it must inform users that their content is unavailable due to the web censorship and not beat around the bush.

    I love Opera very much.  But I am here to say this is a bad release for sure.  Even having trouble posting comment on here.

    I have tried disabling HWA and enabled it.  Nothing helped.  

    Facebook games, videos and sometimes youtube do not work at all.  Re installed flash.. nothing.

    Downgrading today.

      Try clean install, also do you have x86 or x64 version installed?
