Do yourselves a favour and get onto a private tracker like Torrentleech or IPTorrents.......

bypass eircom's blocking of TPB

Yes, indeed they have blocked TPB but it is a pointless move since any webproxy will bypass it...

so all you gotta do is type 'webproxies' into google and the enter the TPB web address thepiratebay.org

I cant believe this. its not the actual site, its the point of being blocked.

For f sake..there is SO much porn out there and other crazy and freeky sites..and they block a this??

against our constitutional rights.

Back to the point, who can i move to now? And by F i will.

m.

ps: we irish are a shower of gob ****es, if we let this happen. The Gov are walking all over us. Now property tax ?
punish the working and the poor again...

eircom is the government now? Keep the misinformed pseudo-politics to The Cuckoo's Nest, or some other suitable forum.

I'm on their 7mb in Limerick and it's fine tonight.

Well I'll be with them for one more week, no capitalist corporation hellbent on screwing people for profit at any cost will dictate how I use an essential service.

eircom.....block!

after about 5 mins online...

i found a way to unblock ANYsite..as u should to.

Like i said , its not the sites they are blocking, its the point. Like many others i did not know what pirate bay was until it was in the papers!

Anyway. I dont use that site. But if u "did" want to, its so easy. I dont condone downloading music or whatever. Im more into online radio, which is great! no ads!

But my point is..try search google for some nasty stuff and my GOD you get some serious stuff.

But thats our choice as a individuals.

Eircom should not block anything.

Free country.

When you download torrents every peer you're connected to can see your IP address and you can see all of theirs. IRMA/Sony/etc connect to the torrents themselves and record all IPs that they download from (downloading isn't illegal per se - uploading is). From your public IP address they can find out your ISP. They then mail your ISP with the IP details, the file details and the exact date and time. They don't know who you are - all they have is the IP that you were using at that particular time. Your ISP can then match that up to your account and send you a warning.

Well Im with Smart and Still going, If they move to the Ban as well i will be moving to UPC and if they move to the Ban then I'm totally F....

I check my Dads PC as he using Smart if you use https://vtunnel.com you can get into the TPB but peer downing i dont know if they can block that as your P2P with some other person in the World and downloading off him.

Man Why cant we be like Russia or China, They dont give 2 F...s about Sony/BMI or anyone like this and sure hackers Freedom over their.
