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 agree... but you can still run into problems if you use proprietary internet services like Windows Live Messenger. I connect to an MSN account via Pidgin on Linux, although I use it very rarely. Then again, another comment mentions that using MSN over Jabber they can send Pirate Bay links, so maybe the restriction is in the client software.
