TinyURL.com Blocked by Panera Bread

Could someone help me understand this one?

I can understand Panera choosing to block porn sites, since it could be disturbing for customers to glance over to see a neighboring table watching porn while they’re trying to enjoy some bread bowl chowder.

But why is TinyURL.com banned? Why not just block inappropriate sites that people may be trying to access after being redirected from TinyURL.com?

Blocked TinyURL

For example, I tried to visit a perfectly legitimate news linked in Twitter via a TinyURL. This was inaccessible to me.

Additionally, I couldn’t create TinyURLs for inclusion in emails I was trying to send.

Any theories on why this is on the blocked list?
