Quote:Reader Who Bought Huge Arsenal Of Guns Online Gets His IP Blocked—And Thinks The Government Did It

At least one commenter claimed he was writing the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms to complain.
Well, we have now heard from the gun-buyer again.
He says his IP address is now blocked from visiting gun and ammunition websites from his phone and home computers.

assuming the reader remains unable to access weapons sites, it will be interesting to figure out what is really going on. Most likely, if anyone is "blocking" the reader, it's his Internet Service Provider.

Yeah that's the webhost doing that not the government or his ISP.
The law? The law is a human institution...

I can't see an ISP doing this. They aren't even blocking people who pirate software. Shrug

Cell phone and his home computer? Are they the same provider? That would be incredibly strange for an ISP to do that without it being spelled out in their AUP/TOS.

His phone and home computers wouldn't have the same IP unless they're on a LAN in which case his phone would be unblocked when operating outside of his WIFI. If it is indeed blocked for his phone and home computers and are both provided by the same service it may indicate the service provider is involved. Shrug Though the government really isn't a suspect in my opinion.

That's why I thought it was strange. His cell phone provider and ISP would have to be in collusion, unless they're the same provider, or he were using his phone via wifi on his own network. I would assume he would have tested that before blaming the black SUV's.

My tablet changes IP addresses constantly. Google results change everytime it happens. It shows up everywhere from Maryland to New Jersey to North Carolina.

Unless you're using your home internet connection for your tablet's internet service.

The ISP could still prevent you from accessing any sites they wanted if it was they who were responsible for the blocking.
