[Britpack] Rage!

When did those cocksucking shitweasels at the IWF decide that any and all requests to web.archive.org must be blocked? And how the hell do we reclaim one of the most useful utilities on the whole damn Internet?

EDIT: Apparently, this is something personal, as other users of my ISP don't get the same shit. I'll raise hell in the morning.

web.archive.org looks to be working okay at my end.

I'm on Be Unlimited, who AIUI share BT's network, so if IWF were blocking archive.org I'm fairly sure I'd be unable to see it.

Where are you coming in from and what are you looking for?

On Demon. Not the actual wayback machine, but results pages:

Does http://web.archive.org/web/20050305203521/http://www.digitalraven.org/ resolve to something other than a 404 to you?

Because I'm being bounced to iwfwebfilter.thus.net. Given that's the same URL was being used for the Wikipedia filter, and given that I've not had a lot of sleep in the last week, I attributed it to the same source.

That URL worked fine for me. I think you may have cache corruption issues (generic "you" -- your browser or your ISP's web cache).

So what the holy fuck are they doing filtering me? I sense a very pissed-off phone call tomorrow.
