Submission + - Verizon Blocking Anonops (

JustABlitheringIdiot writes: I saw this posting today and yes it old older news but this /. after all.

In December 2010 Verizon pulled a dirty trick by silently blocking most all know IP addresses used by IRC, web and other server operated for Operation Payback. This move was made without notice to Verizon’s customers and without the ability to opt out of the blocking. It is unclear as to Verizon’s motivation for this censorship of the internet. One can speculate that they don’t want their FiOS service making the news as the straw that broke the camel’s back for the next web server to be hit by Anonymous.

Does anybody know if this is still going on? Also why didn't this make it on here sooner?

A failure will not appear until a unit has passed final inspection.
