Basically, I don't think it'll last too long. They'll take down the block soon.

Maybe they can pull a time warner and introduce metered billing plans as well to help really chase off their customers.

I guess that's one way to figure out how go out of business. start with the die hard crowd and anger them then just work your way down.

I really don't see why they blocked it.. I'm guessing most AT&T users don't go on 4chan.. and those who may stumble across it and object will never go back, they don't need it to be blocked.

Indeed, ISP enforced internet censorship by blacklisting domains isn't news at all. /eyeroll

Because running the topic through google news would be troublesome. Stories all begin somewhere, once the parties involved start confirming the stories then it's best to drop the "it's from blah blah.com..." like it's going to somehow gain meaning.

AT&T already confirmed with websites that they were blocking portions of the site.

Great irony that an AT&T U-Verse banner ad is at the bottom of my page....

Its not about being able to get around it, most users were reporting that they had no trouble getting around it via proxy.

Its about the whole censorship issue.

AT&T is the WORST company on the planet. The list of why is endless, and all it's past and present customers will agree. They SUCK!!!
