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 Paul McFly VirginMedia Technical Support http://status2.virginmedia.com/ " _______________________________________________ Wikimedia UK mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_UK http://mail.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimediauk-l
