      no they were /are filtering it they told me so as it is on the IWF list, the https:// works for me also ,but to download links you also have to modify those too, so is a pain,
      Sometime the https:// and the ssl don't work too, it has been know in the past, checkout the thinkbroadband forums, they are full of this

      We should write a complaint to IWF and tell them to fix this problem

      a petition, would be better ,they may take more notice, as they are self governed, and will blame the isp for not correctly implementing the filters

      why the hell they cannot have some type of agreement with RS and other file hosts , were as they give the file host a list of the links that contain the C.P. content , and the host nukes them, simple, no need for isp's to filter anything, unless the file host failed to co -operate with the net nanny iwf

      you can also add another file host to the list:Megaupload.com is also blocked

      I doubt it's a block guys as both sites are available again at the moment, It's probably more like others have said suggesting a routing issue.

      Agree with Orbiter , It has to be a routing issue as blocked means blocked! nothing would comes through at all, but I was downloading from Radpishare last night with no issues so it cannot be blocked. ps the fix by man_hunt worked a treat... cheers

      I added the line to the hosts file as mentioned previously and my RS downloading (via FlashGet) started working again no problem...

      Thanks for the info!

      All the troublesome sites are working again now, just have to see how long it lasts this time Got the standard reply from Sky today on this problem asking me to check my stuff even though I informed them that this was for all LLU customers and NOT just me I'll see what comes back after sending a follow up explanation (with completed form.)

      It seems so. The email reads a bit like this (must keep confidentiality )... 'We are currently working on this problem and will solve it as quickly as possible'.

      There must be multiple issues though as it doesn't explain why M/upload and Speedtest went AWOL as well
