Censorship?

I read an article yesterday about Telstra and Vodafone blocking access to certain websites, 4chan / 8chan. I notice that some of these websites are now blocked with TPG as well. Was this an intentional move by TPG?

 

FYI, these websites are messageboards/imageboards and they operate lawfully – that includes removing illegal material when requested. Yes, exactly like Facebook.

Hi there,

 

Jon Brodkin wrote about it in his article on arstechnica: 4chan, 8chan blocked by Australian and NZ ISPs for hosting shooting video. Such "blocks"  are merely a DNS poisoning process. I wonder if Tor may solve the issue. Have you tried it yet?
