misc: Piratebay blocked by Eircon

Picture 2

Just read that eircon have blocked www.thepiratebay.com to its subscribers, so naturally I tried visiting it. You can see the result above. You can read more about the issue here. Interestingly, eircon continue by saying:

Eircom would like to reassure customers that as part of the block Eircom will not monitor customers’ activities at any stage, nor will it place any monitoring equipment or software on its network in order to facilitate this block .

Nice apostrophe placement, at least somebody in eircon know’s what they’re doing.
