Comcast and Rogers block The Pirate Bay

iONiUM writes "Starting yesterday, it seems Comcast and Rogers have blocked access to the pirate bay. This would not be the first time Comcast has blocked the pirate bay (and denied it). From the article: "The traceroute from Comcast connections stops at thepiratebay.piratpartiet.se, as it’s supposed to, but The Pirate Bay website does not appear. Further tests show that the blockade is not DNS related. What is actually causing the issue is uncertain at this point.""

UPdated update (1)

Update: After affecting only Comcast users for about 15 hours, The Pirate Bay seems to be inaccessible pretty much everywhere now. The Pirate Bay team is looking into it. (Update: one webserver died, should be back for most people who are not on Comcast now).
