It seems to resolve fine at my side.
Can you send the output of a dns lookup from your side?

Can you check 1.1.1.2 and .3?

Does not look blocked to me:

% dig @1.1.1.3 revolve.news +short
23.236.62.147
% dig @1.1.1.2 revolve.news +short
23.236.62.147

You are missing the “r” at the end of the domain name.

I just copied the version from the thread. It is filtered by Cloudflare for Families. If you believe this is miscategorized, you can report it here: https://report.teams.cloudflare.com

Thank you Michael,
Is there a way to look up whats its listed as?

1.1.1.3 says its filtering on malware and adult sites, this site is conservative news?

still blocked, how long does recategorization take?

dig @1.1.1.3 revolver.news +short
0.0.0.0

See the “Slow to Update Data Structures” section at one of Cloudflare’s previous blog posts: The Mistake that Caused 1.1.1.3 to Block LGBTQIA+ Sites Today.

It’s no simple or quick task to update the filters, so I doubt that they’ll immediately process recategorization requests and put them live right away, instead they’ll probably do them in batches as that makes more sense for such time-taking process.

Thank you arunesh90!
Just note we reported the same issue with bitbucket.org and was resolved within hours;
[Family DNS filters blocking site: bitbucket.org](http://DNS filters blocking site: bitbucket.org)

Just checked again its still blocked after 24 hours of request;
dig @1.1.1.3 revolver.news +short
0.0.0.0

@jparnell Have you done any other reviews? I just had to file my first one as cognitoforms.com is currently blocked by 1.1.1.3. It is just a business forms site that we use for QC. Curious how long it takes for the review process. I am quite disappointed that the current process is basically fire and forget as you cannot submit an email address for follow up notifications. You have no way to know if someone is working on it, if it was approved or rejected, etc.

After several days its still blocked, sad as it seems political at this point guess its off to one of the many other DNS services.
@bsnowden hope you have better luck
