Oron Download Limit Experience!!

I seem to  have fallen foul of Plusnet's IWF routing of Oron URLs and been unable to access important files. Are others experiencing this?
I have several referals under my belt, but if this sort of thing is going to occur then I've passed on my last recommendation of PlusNet

Re: Oron Download Limit Experience!!

doing a quick google of "Oron" can see why, it hosts extremely dodgy material

Re: Oron Download Limit Experience!!

Yes Oron is a "dodgy" to say the least file host, lots of pirate material stored there probably hence why it is not available, sadly a lot of these hosts will be finding themselves blocked slowly but surely over the coming years, not sure I agree with an ISP making this decision for me however rules is rules............
I have used Rapidshare for a number of years now, they have had their entanglements with piracy as well but they do actively remove content when it is found, they also recently went through a court case and won so out of them all rapidshare is probably here to stay, for a while at least.
I have been looking for a more clean cut cloud option for a while now to store backups, photos etc etc etc they all seem to be a bit rich on the old fee front though, if anyone has any suggestions I am all ears Smiley

A trace to oron.com doesn't seem to be going anywhere near the IWF proxies at the moment?

@cardiffboy, can you provide a trace so I can see what route your traffic's taking? Alternatively, do you have the specific URL of some of the content you're trying to access?
