      It's not Sky - if you read the other posts you'll see it's likely to down to Sky's peering with Level3 that's causing the block...

      Seem to be working now. Very suspicious though, a foretaste of things to come, methinks.

      I don't agree. If you cannot get to a website (because it has been blocked) to commit an offence of illegal downloading, how are you then going to get kicked off by your ISP for breaking the law?

      This problem happens every couple or months or so and is nearly always a peering issue.

      Re: Are sky blocking rapidshare.com?

      The fact it wasn't only file sharing websites, but "big" sites really makes me think it had nothing to do with file sharing. We know WordPress files and ProBoards, a big forum host, were affected. We know about the file sharing sites because they're popular so people start posting here; but imagine how many small legal sites were also affected but we don't know. That would, I guess, swing the proportion of affected sites well away from file sharing.
