AT&T has begun blocking some of 4chan.org’s most highly trafficked message boards, including the infamous /b/ board. moot, who began 4chan and runs the site to this day, has already written a post about this on the 4chan status blog.
The censorship at this time extended only to AT&T DSL customers, with wireless (3G) customers believed to be unaffected.
I really don’t think AT&T has any idea what kind of firestorm they are about to unleash here.
