Anything from img.4chan.org is blocked on AT&T now. As a result, the /b/ board of 4chan is effectively unusable for customers on AT&T. This isn't without precedent. In Canada, Telus blocked access to a union website that they were in a dispute with for all its customers. Obviously they were met with insane backlash. This is the type of thing that holds back the internet from being used to its full potential.

Of course, they honestly could not have picked a more entertaining target for this. The type of people who go to that board aren't really going to take this lying down so it should be interesting to see how it plays out.

I don't really care about 4chan, but yeah it sounds like a AT&T is picking a fight that can have bad repurcussions. AT&T is bad enough, but imagine the image they might get if/when 4chan retaliates.

First they came for the pedophiles, and I said nothing, for I was not a pedophile.

They just want to censor hentai? I thought this was going to be something about legal issues.

They are not nerdy 15 year old boys, therefore they should stay out.

Eh where is a trusty internet news website where I can read this? Because I'm using AT&T and I can still go on 4chan.

Honestly, 4chan can be a force to be reckoned with. I can't tell you how many 4chan memes I've heard people say in real life. They have the power to spread something as far as they want.

This is right, the only confirmed blocking is in Cali. Plus I doubt any big new site is going to pick this up right away.

I have AT&T and live in Illinois and can't access the website (not that I ever do anyways). It just keeps timing out.

Dun, dun, dunnnn.

it's kind of scary, reminds me of how would the censorship of the internet and eventually free speech can commence.

Après avoir crevé par accès de furie

At&t picking a fight with anonymous isn't going to end well. Its like the school bully picking a fight with the weird chinese kid who knows martial arts.

We are anonymous. Anon is legion. Anon never forgives. Anon can be a horrible, senseless, uncaring monster. Anon is still able to deliver. Anon is everywhere, even on the inside of the source...

seriously though some /B/tard who works at AT&T probably just trolled the entire country...

According to this they've already started planning a counter-attack. First up is the CEO. lulz will ensue, gentlemen.


A man was irritated that Verizon didn't protect his information, so he managed to go through the company to get the CEO's home address and sat outside the house with a megaphone shouting "Can you hear me now?"

That's just one man. AT&T is f*cking with 4chan. Of course it'll be bad.
