Re: Rarbg.com

I can load the site fine, although a traceroute can look suspiciously short, with different traceroute methods giving different results:

Did you get a plain page with just the words "site blocked" or similar?

Re: Rarbg.com

I am fairly certain I could access the site earlier, but now I'm getting the "Error – site blocked" page courtesy of BT which typically goes with the short TCP port 80 traceroutes into bt.net.

Re: Rarbg.com

If you're getting the Error - Site Blocked message then the site is being blocked by one of the peers Plusnet use to route their traffic through (BT in this case), and not explicitly by Plusnet.
Plusnet won't do anything about such routing 'anomalies' so the site ends up essentially blocked until the routing tables shift automatically as another routing peer becomes more favourable.
It's working for me at the moment, via pcl-ag01.

This is of relevance.

Re: Rarbg.com

It's really not.
BT Retail and the other ISPs have been given the court order.
BTnet have not.

Re: Rarbg.com

Given that it's almost certainly the reason the OP is seeing what they are then I'd say it is of relevance.
Point well made though Wink

Re: Rarbg.com

The tactic surely now is to get pirated files on to up to now innocent sites as fast as possible so that the ASA either go after blocking so many sites it becomes ridiculous and there is a backlash, or they have to give up.
