Comcast did not help us fix The Pirate Bay. The problem was GBLX using reverse path filtering. We shut down one of our transits because it was flapping. The result was that all outgoing traffic to GBLX got filtered even though the packets took the same path as before.

We resolved the issue by activating our other transit again.

But it's not a good choice — simply the least bad.
