My Homepage got blacklisted by MediaMarkt

Today I went to the MediaMarkt, a local consumer electronics retailer at the SCS (shopping centre). When I came to the Apple demonstration devices (iPhones, iPads, iMacs, and so on) I tried to visit my Homepage FOX21.at with an iPhone and it turns out that FOX21.at is blocked by the firewall. It says that my Homepage is categorized as Hacking. I don’t know if this is only a local or global setting of MediaMarkt’s Barracuda NG Firewall. And I don’t know if I should be proud to be categorized as Hacker or if this is a bad thing. Anyway, I never saw my homepage being blocked like this. So drop me a line to christian@fox21.at (screenshot optional) if you know another network where FOX21.at is also not reachable.
