      However as Jed has said, we can't post the actual links.

      Besdies, if things get fun and Sky and the other ISPs block the new addresses, then I would suggest that you bookmark the sources you find as I have a feeling that they will be updated periodically.
      And then there is VPN but how long before they ban the use of VPN and https?

      I can't see any circumstance where they would block https, it is required for too many secure transactions. VNP is different, as they could block VPN to selected sites.

      This thread has served its purpose now. As have all the other TPB ones.

      We will close all of these off to stop the temptation of people adding links.

      If any genuine questions arise, feel free to start a new thread.
