Beware, T-Mobile thinks they have the right to remove your free speech rights and delete portions of your texts.  Try sending a text to a pal with the link to a thegatewaypundit.com news article.  And watch the link to thegatewaypundit.com news article disappear like magic.  Or 12 million innocent Russian citizens.  If this continues, I’m leaving T-Mobile/Sprint for Freedom Phone, or Visible which costs $25/month, unlimited data, talk and uncensored texts!

There are threads dealing with this already.

I’ve sent and received that URL with no problem or delay.

My theory is that some recipient didn’t like the content (which I have not viewed) and reported it as abuse (e.g porn, violence, etc) and someone at T-Mobile flagged it for review.

Yeah, nice try newcomb.  I sent it to my son who reads thegatewaypundit.com regularly.  This is a real censorship problem, stop trying to write it off other unrelated and unexperienced situations.  Your bigger issue is why doesn’t this cause you consternation?  Are you for tyranny?  Censorship?

youre throwing a bit of a fit on a site that is primarily peer to peer with some moderation to keep things in order only… if you are looking for answers then you are by far in the wrong place for that.

I just tested this myself between all of our T-Mobile lines and also tested sending to some friends up in Canada.  All texts with links to that site went through fine.

The reason that it doesn’t concern me is 1) neither @syaoran nor I can confirm it even exists 2) I understand how it could happen.

Suppose someone reported that they were sent a URL that lead to a child pornography site? What should a company do? Let it go in the name of “free speech”? Put it in someone’s inbox to investigate when they get the time? Block the site first and investigate according to the schedule? If I were the company’s Information Security chief, I’d go for the 3rd choice.

If someone is consistently sending links to that site to others, it is possible that they could be flagged for spamming.  I'm not sure who is wrote the article on the site about T-Mobile blocking their link, but it's clearly fiction. 

There are so many factors into what could be causing the issue for the person but they just seem to be here to white knight for the site that put out an article that clearly isn't factual and nothing more.
