Torrentfreak blocked, Sky on blocking spree


[link to this post]
 
Seems like Sky is on a website blocking spree at the moment. The latest website to get the chop by Sky is torrentfreak, a news site.

Seems unlikely, but does anyone know if this is the subject of a court order?

Tracing route to torrentfreak.com [85.195.84.42]
over a maximum of 30 hops:

1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms SkyRouter.Home [192.168.0.1]

It's not a torrent site proxy, it's a news website.

Contact them and try and find out if it is being intentionally blocked or not, And you should also ask for comphensation as your access is being blocked to legal web sites therefore you aren't receiving the service you are paying for

This will be all too comon place if dim wit's camercon and co get their way with there walled garden for everyone ideas, it's time people stood upto government and told them no

This is done regularly on the official forum. Typically it takes a tedious amount of prodding for a few days before a proper answer is given, usually ending up in the site being unblocked after a couple of weeks.

It's unacceptable that this happens at all, though.

Their filtering has always been clumsy to say the least, they would be frequently blocking file hosts in the name of the IWF, because they couldn't block only the links to the offending content as per IWF's url blocklists that i think always has been a draw back their broken filtering systems that they refuse to update or sort out

Yeah. Blocking a high profile, legitimate site such as Torrentfreak should attract Sky some heat.

Perhaps someone not on Sky can tell them!

Edit: you mean they are aware?
