AT&T lifts 4chan-block, raid suspended

AT&T

AT&T

In a surprisingly swift move, AT&T has lifted the blockade of 4chan.org and its «/b/»-section.

We have earlier written about when and why the ban was put in place, but only 15-16 hours after the 4chan-block was first reported, CentralGadget and TechCrunch now reports that AT&T has indeed confirmed that the block has been lifted.

«AT&T has confirmed that they are currently blocking portions of the internet site 4chan.org, but states that they are «following the practices of their policy department.»»

At 11:15 PM, it appears AT&T have restored network-wide access to all areas of 4chan. Still, there has been no official confirmation to this from moot, the founder of 4chan.org.

On the «official» raid-forum, Anon rejoices and informs that «All rioting/’war’/protests have been suspended for the time being». That might be a good thing, considering there is already circulating rumors that Randall Stephenson, CEO of AT&T, has been found dead outside his home.

Assuming AT&T doesn’t repeat its mistakes, it seems the score is 0-1 in the fight between MegaCorp. vs. Net Neutrality – and another notch in the belt for 4chan’s Anonymous.

    It was blocked because it’s been a DDoS target for weeks. This had nothing to do with content.

    Blame the idiots who run javascript embedded images.

    You /b/queers are so edgy and threatening.
    AIDS, Jews and Niggers are hilarious if you’re a prepubescent retard hiding behind mommy and daddies PC. As soon as your family or friend gets sick all the lulz disappear and you reveal the hypocrite that you are.

    4chan is such a joke and it’s users are even more pathetic. AT&T would have crushed you basement dwelling virgins for life if you did anything. Scientology isn’t going anywhere either, no matter how many V for Vendetta obsessed losers death threat them. You pussies wouldn’t kill shit.

    fucking meme sheep.
