I phoned and posted a request for info on the virginmedia broadband
newsgroup a few hours ago. The man in Mumbai on the helpline was unaware of
the blacklist. I got the following response from the newsgroup after posting
the link to the wikinews coverage -

"Hi Nanonic,

This is not something that technical support would have any information or
control over. This is not only Virgin (as stated in the article) but
multiple ISP's .

Sorry if this has caused any inconvenience but is not a fault but an active
measure to stop inappropriate content on the Internet.

Kind regards
