Yannf posted this on IRC (#wikimedia-in) when I was away,

in my new DSL connection with BSNL, *.wikipedia.org is blocked
any idea?
I get a page of advertising about web hosting
http://commons.wikimedia.org works

My guess is BSNL DNS is playing some game here (IIRC they have local DNS
for each telecom circle). As for the geekish users, they would know to use
opendns, ways to access *.wikipedia.org etc. But this needs to be looked at
seriously. This is not the first time am hearing something like this on
BSNL DNS. If we identify the problem, can the chapter / programs do
necessary running around for the issue and ensure this doesn't exist?
