The Pirate Bay down

http://trendsupdates.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/10/the_pirate_bay_logosvg.pngThe Pirate Bay, which calls itself “the world’s largest bittorrent tracker,” is currently inaccessible to many people around the world, including Comcast users in the United States, according to various reports. This has raised suspicions that Comcast is “at it again” and is blocking the Sweden-based file-sharing site, but in a comment to Engadget, Comcast denies doing so. Comcast, of course, has throttled file-sharing traffic before. Its 2007 throttling of BitTorrent traffic led to an FCC investigation, and was the precursor for net neutrality rules that are still being debated to this day.
