      Rapidshare now have millions of users all over the world, I wonder if they have upped the servers to compensate. I have a friend in South Africa who is having the same problem, except he can't blame Sky.

      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      So is this a sky problem? Had Sky max for about 2 weeks and only in the last 2 days has it not been working. Every now and then it does work but mostly i get the 500 internal server error.

      Just opened rapidshare half way through writing this and it works now. What the hell is going on? I still get the error on http://www.warez-bb.org/ so something is up.

      Pinged both sites and got a reply from rapidshare only.

      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      I am at the end of my sky contract using the Max package and have been occasionally using rapidshare to download throughout my contract and never had any problems, rapidshare has never been blocked until now - only 2 days left with Sky before switching to a new broadband provider and I gave rapidshare a good hammering and guess what? Have been blocked all day now! Been unable to access Rapidshare.com all day, so it must be sky because I connected to a friends PC (he's on TalkTalk using LogMeIn) and signed in to my rapidshare account and downloaded something perfectly fine, but almost impossible using my Sky connection. I altered my host file on my PC and bypassed the “block” and it's all fine now.

      I still get the error on Warez-BB.org Database Error so something is up.
      This could be the problem with warez -

      According to the IWF that statement is no true and is probably just buck passing. This is from the IWF site -
      PHP Code:
      Blocking facilitated by the use of our list applies only to URLs related to child sexual abuse content on publicly available websitesWe have no role in the investigation of suspects therefore tackling the distribution of child sexual abuse content through other channels such as peer-to-peer is the role of our police partnersIWF has no plans to extend the type of content included on the list. 
      To me this means they do not block torrents, P2P etc, only the specific sites containing illegal content.

      well, I'm on RS and SS today so dunno what's going on...at first SS did say it could be routing but then came up with that...it's working now though so it's cool, and if it goes down again I can go through a proxy...

      Re: Sky Block rapidshare.com?

      if i visit the website too often then i get the error and it blocks, the same is happening with youtube and a few other streaming sites. Visit them too often and they stop working. Only watch about 6-7 vidoes on youtube. Sky are really annoying, going to call them in a bit and have a go. D/L speed is very slow too.
