Virgin blocking https://skills.emsidata.com/

Not sure where to put this issue. On https://skills.emsidata.com/ the functionality for searching skills seems to be blocked by virgin. If I tether my laptop via a mobile internet connection, the search functions fine.  To test it, you scroll down the page to 'Skills library' and type something, e.g. Photoshop and the skill should pop up. 

To make things more confusing, my friends have virgin broadband accounts and things are working fine for them. 

I've switched off the virgin firewall and also tried returning my router to factory defaults. 

Any ideas welcome.

It works Ok here in the UK.

Are you and your friends accessing the site from the UK?

Same here, I'm having no issues loading that site on VM either

I work for VMO2 but all opinions are my own and are based on my own experiences

Site works just fine from my VM account.  It is almost as if @exitsmiling is using this forum to boost traffic to their site.

@ModTeam What say you on this?  Spam or a genuine issue?  My money is on spam and this thread needs to be binned but that is the mods call.
