Xfinity blocking nmgl.org

I recently needed to get to the website at http://nmgl.org/ but found Xfinity XFi was blocking it. Can you tell me why, so I can report it to them so they can get their website fixed?

 

Thanks,

Steve

I can get to it at https://nmgl.org .  You  might want to try that instead of http .

The poster mentioned xFi. Perhaps the block is an xFi "Protected Browsing" or "Advanced Security" block, as in https://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Email-Web-Browsing/artist-website-blocked-my-own/m-p/3266739#M212343. If so, http vs https may not matter.

 

I do not know how to request a site that is blocked by xFi be unblocked. I'm sure it can be done, but Comcast does not appear to offer users a mechanism to do that.

 

ETA: Note that this site automatically switches to HTTPS when it accessed by HTTP.
