Filestube being blocked by Plusnet??


[link to this post]
 
Can any Plusnet users confirm that filestube.com has been blocked in the UK?? I have been unable to access the site for the past week via my Plusnet connection ...

Post a traceroute to it from your connection. It could have ended up in the IWF list...

Hiya thanks for your suggestion unfortunately not too technical on the hardware side of things but this confirms that filestube is on the IWF list:

Strange are you using a proxy or something to access the net??

Having said that I tried a couple of the filesharing sites that appear on the list (see post above) and they work fine ... strange.

Plusnet have had some funnies with routing and the IWF proxies recently with some sites being reachable from some gateways and not from others.

Have you tried a disconnect/reconnect to see if that makes a difference?

Well, that was an interesting link! I'm all infavour of the work done to protect the victims of abuse but surely depositfiles, for example does have perfectly legitimate content and certainly content not covered by the IWF criteria.

I have checked www.filestube.com for you and it doesn't seem to load here.

...... but this confirms that filestube is on the IWF list......

That list is inaccurate in many cases, including I believe, the entry for FilesTube.
