There has been alot of customers on our network who were complaining about ACK scan reports coming from 188.8.131.52. We had no choice but to block that single IP until the attacks let up. It was a decision I made with the gentleman that owns the colo facility currently hosts 4chan. There was no other way around it. I'm sure AT&T is probably blocking it for the same reason. 4chan has been under attack for over 3 weeks, the attacks filling up an entire GigE. If you want to blame anyone, blame the script kiddies who pull this kind of stunt.

it was my understanding if AT&T dipped their toe into moderating the entire internet, they'd be losing the whole "common carrier" thing?
I was looking at 4chan last night and was pretty surprised at how mature the discussion around AT&T was. There was a thread started but one Anon who lived a block or so away from the CEO of AT&T and, despite the expected lulzy suggestions for retaliation, a voice encouraged reason and the absolute absence of aggressiveness and was not shouted down.
