    That is not censorship, the twits from 4chan launched DOS attacks on AT&T's network. They deserved what they got. It's a shame AT&T didn't make the block permanent. That site is overrun by a bunch of spoiled brat script kiddies who post child porn and illegal software full of viruses. Their only goal is to cause mischief.
