"4chan is a site for degenerates, society is not losing out here." Well trooth it doesn't really matter what you think about the site or its users.The internet is about freedom , or you want to block all the sites that don't appeal to you? If I would use Verizon Id be angry right now even if I am not a 4chan user.

Yeah, who cares what the content is. People here always seem to be so about internet freedom unless it doesn't affect them or affects a group they have a personal dislike for. This is net neutrality 101, and clearly wrong.

What's their justification for it? DDoS attacks? That possibly could be fair justification but I would want to see evidence of that, cause anyone could simply claim it about any large online organization and shut them down.

Wow...and Verizon opts to not block the real "melishious" websites? *shakes head*

My personal opinion:
I'd agree with Verizon only if these conditions are found to be true of 4Chan.
1) 90% of members are for or members of PETA
2) They all use Apple products
3) They all think Steve Jobs is the Messiah
5) They are all facists tree huggin liberal
6) They want me to pay for thier Health Care.

Never been to the site, so no idea about content. I use to go to a popular blog about cars of all things got several attacks when on it and now no longer go. I have a co-worker that likes to go to literary sites while at work and have been attack with all kind of malware. Here at work we allow lots of internet browsing to the employees on down time, but any time we get attacked, we block all sites that were active during the attack. Maybe their business model is to simply protect rather than censor. I strongly believe in much stronger penalties for hackers and writers of this malicious code. They are the ones ruining net freedom.

While 4chan can be a bit like the Old West on speed (particularly /b/), it's hardly the worst offending website out there--especially since there are plenty of image boards on 4chan that are completely innocent of any socially dubious content. It's troublesome that the current trend of service providers not only decides how much you can use the internet, but where you can go on the internet.

Um...my first sentence was on topic. The rest was clearly typed as "My" opinion. Apparently you don't read.

Censorship occurs ONLY when it is done by the government.

Too many people fail to understand that the Constitution and specifically the Bill of Rights applies to limiting the powers of government over the citizens and their property. You rights here only extend as far as your contract and deciding not to do business with Verizon.

Verizon is a private business. They can ban or promote whatever they want so long as they don't violate our laws (which is in itself has become a lot of an overreach by the government). No one has a right to force them to do business with anyone they find offensive and you have every right to dump them when your contract expires if you find their conduct offensive.

You can thank the idiots w/ the DDoS attacks for this "explicit blocking." Freedoms abused. Freedoms revoked. Next.
