Same here. Guess their service isn't "unlimited" any more lol. Torrents suck anyway. Nzbs ftw!

Same here.
Took me all of 2 seconds to get around it lol

Kinda shows the waste of time and money the court order was

Is it just forwarding the DNS there? Could bypass using dyndns's servers I guess?

well no they havent blocked it according to a court order.... as that court order isnt valid according to the european court.
VM are mearly complying with the wishes of those offering the case... they arent under obligation.

VM are dicks. I wouldnt use them

\i think there was a European court ruling about 6 months ago which ruled that ISPs cannot be made to filter sites.
The ISPs do not have to comply with this block and VM are the only ones at the moment who are i think.

Not for long...

Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, O2 and Virgin Media must all … Sky, Everything Everywhere, TalkTalk, O2 and Virgin Media must all prevent their users from accessing the site.

Still works on TalkTalk.

Since the courts are now taking action against these torrent sites, the best thing to do is... download as much as you can now!!!! (_;)

I would recommend something else but i'm not allowed to talk about it.
