Internet Censorship Steps Up To Bat

Right now, I am at a loss for words at my utter hatred towards AT&T. They have thrown the first punch in a series of certain blows towards a censored internet in America. This CANNOT be tolerated by the people of the US. They have started by blocking a few sub directories of the popular web-culture site 4chan, including /b/. Although I don’t frequent this website, I understand its importance to the web community, and also that any punch thrown in the spirit of internet censorship cannot be tolerated. My advice to anyone reading this is to immediately cancel any and all AT&T services citing this as a reason, and tell anyone else using AT&T to do the same as well. If we let them control the internet now, there may be a point where we never get unbiased information from the internet again.

Please Digg up this article to inform more of the evils that are occuring.

EDIT: AT&T has unblocked 4chan, and all is well (for now.) However, this could likely be a “test the waters” scenario, in case they ever plan on blocking sites in the future. Hopefully the splurge of internet activism that occurred will teach them their lesson.
