Title Keyword is Blocked Totally!

In my ISP, Sepanta, any URL containting the word “Title” or any combination of it, is assumed a URL which should be blocked. That’s why Second News XML Service is blocked, Khyal Gallery’s Sub Title picture is blocked, Nedstat Title is blocked and the rest which you might have faced till now. I think tomorrow “Ali Parvaresh” will be blocked :)
