According to various sources, AT&T (a major ISP in US) is blocking some parts of 4chan.org. I'd consider this just rumor and speculation as no "reputable" sources have posted the story. But still...scary and worth mentioning.

Had it not been posted on Techcrunch, a semi-reputable source in my opinion, I would not have bothered to post it here.

It was all because of script kiddies and not so much the ISP supposedly. They would block 4chan totally if they wanted to.

I could test this but then I would feel dirty I know what 4chan is and while I am agianst blocking it I wouldn't want to go there.
