Internet & Networking "The Pirate Bay is not only the most visited BitTorrent site on the Internet, but arguably the most censored too. Many ISPs have been ordered to block their customers’ access to the website, and recently Microsoft joined in on the action by stopping people sharing its location with others. Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger now refuses to pass on links to The Pirate Bay website, claiming they are unsafe." They refuse links to The Pirate Bay. In that light, here are a bunch of completely and utterly useless links to The Pirate Bay. And some more. And then some. Update: We have some more links to The Pirate Bay.

I have the same issues on an old .hopto.org address from No-IP that I've had for over a decade. All the 'free domain' services and non-standard port redirects are automatically blocked by messenger -- been that way for ages.

It's another case of their alleged "helping prevent spam" that does jack ****, while they're still the number one source of IM spam; Y! of course being number one.
