Verizon Blocking 4chan

ScuttleMonkey posted more than 4 years ago | from the and-nothing-of-value-was-lost dept.

The Internet 677

An anonymous reader writes "According to 4chan's owner and administrator 'moot,' Verizon has explicitly blocked all traffic on their network from boards.4chan.org, where all of 4chan's boards are located. Moot explains that only traffic to and from port 80 is being dropped and they were able to confirm that it was intentional. 4chan's downtime for Verizon users has been in effect for at least 72 hours since Saturday, February 7."

Oh yes, Verizon is sooo screwed, one of the largest ISPs in the world might get DDoSed by a hundred retarded people who will actually have the knowhow to DDoS, while thousands of others will wind up downloading trojans that spam 4chan.

Actually, Verizon is screwed. If they wish to maintain certain legal status they'll unblock 4chan and fast. Otherwise they'll become liable for any copyright infringement going on their network because they're showing that they are actively monitoring and controlling data, instead of acting as a neutral data routing service.

So what's life like looking through the world in rose-tinted glasses?
In all seriousness, do you know how easy it is to block a single subdomain network-wide and how extremely fucking difficult it is to sort through legal and illegal BitTorrent traffic?

The DMCA safe harbor provision is completely different from common carrier protection and applies regardless of whether the content host monitors their content or not.

is it actually necessary, though, that the be a 'neutral data routing service'? Say I own a restaurant. Let's get fancy, call it a Food Routing Service. If I feel that it's immoral to serve veal, or dogmeat, or endangered animal flesh, or something possibly dangerous like pufferfish, then I can do that. People get to know me as the restaurant with that kind of menu and if someone needs something off my menu, they're welcome to go somewhere else to get it but I just wont serve it.. or is my analogy lacking something? Seems solid to me... There's got to be a hundred-thousand other web pages where a person can get images of -*ahem*, that sort, if it's really that important.

Your analogy works as long as people have a choice. In some areas, people only have one ISP available to them as a reasonable source of Internet access. If Verizon was someone's only choice, then they can't really go anywhere else. Or, to go along with your analogy, if you owned the only restaurant in town and there were no supermarkets, convenience stores, etc...

4chan is a bunch of bitches compared to Verizon. One has an army of juveniles the other has an army of congressmen. Which one do you think will win?

Sure the juveniles have anonymity and a mob willing to play unfair, but what are they gonna do? Attack Verizon? That happens everyday. Boycott them? Get in line. Complain? No solution there.

Looks like 4chan is shit out of luck. They need to convince people they are obeying the law or else they'll just keep getting nailed and it will get worse. Having pedo-porn posted on your site every single day is not a freedom of speech issue.

You acknowledge and agree that Verizon (a) is not responsible for invalid destinations, transmission errors, or the corruption of your data; and (b) does not guarantee your ability to access all websites, servers or other facilities or that the Service is secure or will meet your needs.

Re:Subject to change without notice. (3, Insightful)

mariox19 (632969) | more than 4 years ago | (#31065176)

(b) does not guarantee your ability to access all websites [...]

That sounds more like a hold harmless clause [businessdictionary.com] to keep you from suing them if you aren't able to access your local radio station's Web contest because of Internet traffic or server failure on their part than it does a notification that they may at anytime decide to block a Web site.

I think Verizon has done something wrong here. If they want to offer something more along the lines AOL's old walled garden, they can't advertise it as the Internet, or at the very least, they need to spell out their restrictions.

When an ISP blocks your SMTP port to combat spam, somewhere in the agreement they spell this out. If they're going to reserve the right to block Web sites, they need to spell this out, too.

Jeng (926980) | more than 4 years ago | (#31065080)

I would imagine all this does is give 4chan something to bitch about.

The main downside is that there are people trying to reach 4chan who cannot, and therefor will visit other parts of the internet. Before now they were contained, now Verizon broke containment.

Re:I feel split in this matter (5, Insightful)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#31065142)

Imagine if you will, Verizon blocked Slashdot, and the internet was glad that all those FSF loving Unix-beard hippies would finally shut up about "This is the year of Linux on the desktop" rather than hoping for its return and condemning such censorship. Does that represent a portion of the populace? Sure. But if you loved going there you'd still be upset about not getting it back.

I love 4chan, I hate /b/, but 4chan as a whole is a unique collection of message boards with a much faster rate of posting than anything else on the internet, its almost part chatroom. The individual boards all have their own culture and sense of humor, and many of them are great sources of discussion and debate (sup /v/).

Please don't blindly judge 4chan based on /b/ and its stupid memes alone. People got tired of that whole "anonymous is legion" and "lolcat" shit a long time ago.

If I'm not mistaken some browsers only POST on 80, 443 and 8080 ports...
I *think* I've stumbled across that problem with Firefox a couple of years ago...
Or my memory is playing tricks on me...can't be sure...

I have verizon fios and was on the photography & wallpaper boards just this morning. I'm wondering if the ban is only for the 18+ boards?

FiOS is not affected (0)

Well since I posted this on Gizmodo I'll post it here too I guess...I live near Philadelphia and have Verizon FiOS and I have no problem whatsoever getting to 4chan or the /b/ boards. Other people were saying it only has to do with Verizon Wireless such as 3G modem cards. I'm not sure if that's the case but FiOS in the Philly area is definitely not affected (yet anyway).

I guess 4chan just got modded -1, off topic on Verizon wireless. [slashdot.org]
