So AT&T has decided to block 4chan... Get your popcorn ready, boys and girls. This is gonna be good.

Also, Cogent Communications has also signed themselves up for a subscription to No-Fun Weekly. Let the games begin!

I couldn't find much solid information when I spotted this on slashdot at lunchtime, but it looks like someone was DDoS'ing 4chan, with traffic spoofed to come from AT&T. No news on if that was the real reason for AT&T, but I found a report from another ISP which blocked 4chan for the same reason.

If that was the case, then it's not unreasonable for AT&T to temporarily block 4chan to avoid their own network being overloaded. Not that the 4chan crowd will see it that way.
