Why is it obvious it's your ISP? It might be the site owners blocking a block of IPs belonging to an ISP.

As an adult, I'm trying to think of a good reason for a site designed for posting nasty things about others. For over-18s too it seems. Strange way to spend the best years of one's life.

Site could be blocking UK addresses to avoid litigation - bit of a stretch I know - be interesting to see if others can get to it without using a proxy. Google is listing it as first entry.

Maybe, censorship for bullying what next i ask,Bullying at school is part of growing up or was in my day, prepares most for the pressures in later life, not that i condone bullying but by blocking such sites all they do is increase awareness of this sites, i for one had never hear of it until i saw panorama, this country just gets worse,
Do they not remember the sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me rhyme

According to this it's closed down.
"Little Gossip" a website used by school children to anonymously gossip about others has been closed down due to constant "malicious comments". The site was criticised by an anti-bullying charity last February for having schools on its list of places people are able to gossip about.

The owners of the site released a statement about the closure explaing their decission was due to the abusive posts which they claim is "something that we can not support".
Also reported here.

Edit: Apologies. That last link, to the BBC, was dated February 2011; the first link is current though.
