So, the first shots have been fired, starting off the war on net neutrality. AT&T, famous for its tendency to try and monopolize the internet, has restricted all access to 4chan's /b/ and /r9k/ boards.

The Internet Hate Machine is already starting up. It took only 5 hours for Anonymous to mobilize. moot acknowledged the ban on his site and urges people to call or write customer support and corporate immediately... but seriously, this is fucking 4chan. They're gonna do a lot more than just that.

You can read about it here.

AT&T may have finally gone in over their heads.

Makes me glad that I'm not part of the soul-binding world of AT&T and it's hordes of iPhone-using drones. Wasn't that company already broken up before for being too much of a monopoly? Whatever happened to that, so soon?

You get 2 cookie points for the title of this topic. :) Nice reference.

Teej, who informed me of the article, has provided us with a link to the headquarters of 4chan's retaliation, Project AT&T.

I'm almost scared for AT&T. They've awoken the beast.

So what is this the start of the great firewall like people have been talking about for months?
Maybe this is just the breaking point.

Short war is short. Access to /b/ and /r9k/ have been restored by AT&T. This first post points out the bullshit that AT&T pulled.

Currently, 4chan is down completely. Teej thinks its because of 15% of its userbase returning to the site simultaneously after the ban was lifted.
