    AT&T Blocks 4CHAN

    This is an epic move by AT&T that can't possibly end well.

    I can see hordes of angry /b/tards rushing AT&T's QB.

    I guess not, have you tried asking them? I have the urge to call them and ask, but there's probably tons of calls from /b/tards.

    Seems like a bit of a rash move on AT&T's part.

    True

    Don't get me wrong I would love to see 4cahn blow up into nothingness along with Encyclopedia dramatica. But I don't think this is the way to go about it.

    Maybe they feel as if they have amnesty due to the fact that they're in bed with the NSA?

    Messages on NANOG indicate that the reason from the block was backscatter packets originating from the 4chan addresses.
