4shared.com blocked by plusnet/bt?

has 4shared.com been blocked by bt and stuck on the iwf blocklist?
i'm getting:
"ERROR
The requested URL could not be retrieved
While trying to retrieve the URL: http://www.4shared.com/
The following error was encountered:
Zero Sized Reply
Squid did not receive any data for this request.
Generated Sun, 17 Jul 2011 18:35:05 GMT by pcl-iwfcache03.plus.net (squid)"
the block is pointless as it's easy to circumvent, so not really bothered, but what's going on here?

I've just tried that link;
http://www.4shared.com/
and it's working fine here. It's definitely not being blocked.

Loads fine for me so maybe a local issue (you or them).

Link worked for me.
It's usually file downloading that's prevented by iwf so I tried a 4shared download and that worked fine as well.

I've managed to register an account, upload a file and download another without any problems. Having said that, the error message being returned in the original post is reminiscent of some issues we've had with our IWF proxies in the past.
@bartstope, are you still having problems?
