    Have you got a news article to link to, at least to give us an indication of the country (presumably US)?

    I don't know what (if any) obligation the ISPs in the US are under. In the UK it's currently a reactive one due to the stalled implementation of the Digital Economy Act; ISPs will block a site if they're given a court order to do so, but aren't obliged to go to any more onerous terms than blocking that site.

    Browser broken? That's just one report. It's all over the Internet for anyone to find, really.
