AT&T Now Censoring the Internet

It just came across NANOG that AT&T is filtering (on DSL accounts) content. The only one I’m aware of at this writing is 4chan. I won’t disagree that some questionable stuff comes across there, but I do object to AT&T deciding what content is allowed over their services. Don’t like 4chan? Then don’t go there. Easy.

UPDATE: It turns out that AT&T was doing DDoS mitigation without actually bothering to tell anyone about it. Guess what guys? The internet moves faster than your PR department. Better use that shitload of money you’re sitting on to keep someone in PR on call in case you have to make a weekend press release rather than leaving it up to rampant speculation.
