    In total honesty, I'm surprised that no one has brought this up but several torrent sites (Including TPB, IsoHunt, Torrenthound and more) have been banned in Australia. In a ruling by the Federal Court Internet Companies are being forced to block them. Trying to access these sites simply gives this message:

    Content Denied
    Access to this website has been disabled by an order of the Federal Court of Australia because it infringes or facilitates the infringement of copyright.

    Whilst this may not have an impact on many of you Tempers I'm quite curious as to what some of the Australian Tempers have to say about this.

    I personally feel that this was going to happen eventually, given what happened to KAT but it is still disappointing news for us Aussies.

    What are your thoughts? Leave them below!

    Hasn't hit me yet, though it is going to be slightly annoying typing something else in the URL bar when it hits here ;P

    ok, yeah not he first time websites have been blocked in the world, your title makes it sounds like a blanket ban/torrent sites made illegal, whether you are able to connect to them or not :)

    If a VPN is 40.00....and the game you want is 40.00.....just throwing numbers. I'm certain it'll be a short matter of time before there's a better solution.

    I don't live in China tho.
    We are cracking down on corruption, things are nicer than ever. And Trump still is the best president the USA could have had in that election. Australia needs a Trump too.
    So does France, Germany and many other countries that have gone to shit.

    But meh whatever. Ti's a hacking forum, we shall not discuss off-topic stuff in this board.

    Good day to you sir. And good luck with the libs.

    SOPA- PIPA, censorship, and other laws and bylaws, etc to censor things like this on the internet, can all die in the depths of hell for all I care :lol:

    But can't this be circumvented by just switching the DNS servers to like google ones? (8.8.8.8, 8.8.4.4)
