Easy Not Quite Everything
- Boycott urged of internet cafes over gay sites ban claim

EASYEVERYTHING, the internet cafe chain, has come under fire from gay rights groups for homophobia.

EasyEverything use a filtering service that some gay sites say is discriminatory. A spokesperson for Rainbow Network said: "They have blocked us before, then the ban was lifted and now it is in place again." Rainbow Network are now calling for its members to boycott easyEverything until the matter is resolved, although the web cafe chain denies any wrong doing.

"We are obliged to stop sites that offer hard core material or are illegal," said James Rothie of easyEverything, part of the EasyGroup that includes easyJet. "There may be some anomalies but it completely wrong to suggest that there is any discrimination."

Gay rights campaigners say that some of the banned sites do not contain hardcore material.
