lunartik writes "AOL and AT&T have decided to block either alt.binary or all of Usenet in order to cooperate with the office of New York state Attorney General Andrew Cuomo. This is part of an effort to block child porn. The companies will also purge data from their servers. AT&T is the largest internet provider in the United States, AOL is third largest. From the Associated Press: "AT&T spokesman Marty Richter said the company would disabled [sic] all those with addresses starting with 'alt.binary,' which is where child-porn images are often exchanged.""
