    AT&T was caught blocking access to it's broadband customers of certain sections of the popular 4Chan.com, *against all precedent* of internet neutrality, the free flow of information, and the right to freedom of speech.

    Although the actual event was minor, affecting only one website, this is clearly about principal. Unless there is legitimate excuse, this is unacceptable at many levels, it is probably illegal, and the FTC will no doubt get involved.

    And it turns out it was only temporary due to a DOS attack.
