4chan vs AT&T

Pe 26 iulie AT&T, principalul furnizor de telefonie si internet american a blocat accesul abonatilor la 4chan. Azi un comunicat al companiei anunta:

“AT&T has responded in a press release this morning, stating the block was a response to a denial-of-service attack associated with IP addresses connected to img.4chan.org (a problem the site’s been having recently), which was affecting some of their customers. As such, an engineer overreacted in his response to the situation, resulting in the current status. AT&T states they have no issue with the content on 4chan; their aim was to protect their customers from malicious traffic.”

Raspunsul “anonim” al 4chan:

In the end, this wasn’t a sinister act of censorship, but rather a bit of a mistake and a poorly executed, disproportionate response on AT&T’s part. Whoever pulled the trigger on blackholing the site probably didn’t anticipate [nor intend] the consequences of doing so. We’re glad to see this short-lived debacle has prompted renewed interest and debate over net neutrality and internet censorship—two very important issues that don’t get nearly enough attention—so perhaps this was all just a blessing in disguise.

Intr-o lume in care dreptul de acces la internet e considerat un drept fundamental (Franta, vezi avizul consiliului constitutional la HADOPI I), mai important decat cel la un cont bancar (poti deveni interzis bancar fara decizie judecatoreasca), in america judecatorii de la curtea suprema au fost inlocuiti cu “ingineri” de la AT&T.

    And once again, it NEVER fails with the incessant lying, as lying is a way of life for these hacker creeps. I salute AT&T for blocking viruses, trojans and nasty spider scripts, as that is what the REAL truth is as to WHY AT&T has flashed the middle finger [blocked] to 4 Chan. Why should AT&T waste time and energy in dealing with viruses, trojans and uncontrollable script programs emanating from the 4 Chan site? I don't condone censorship and I certainly don't condone lies "in the name of lulz". The only thing 4 Chan has proven again and again, is that they are infantile and violent. A bunch of two year olds who go on tirades. And just like an out of control two year old, they need some REAL hard slaps from the school of hard knocks. Any consequences or denial of internet access to AT&T customers due to NAZI actions emanating from 4 Chan [or any other hacker creeps for that matter], I pray that they are caught, rounded up, prosecuted beyond the extent of the law, thrown in a windowless cell and locked up forever until the day they die. I commend AT&T for taking the step forward and I sincerely hope that other ISP'S follow suit ASAP. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. Hackers cause destruction, chaos, waste everyones time and energy. Normal people on the net are SICK AND TIRED of these two year old tantrum antics that 4 Chan displays on a daily basis. These hacker creeps really and truly need to GROW THE F*** UP.
