This site has been blocked by Dutch providers by court order against copyrighted material downloading practices and they were convicted because they did not show up in court, action of Dutch RIAA Brein (=Brain) because the party that does not react to a summoning twitter or e-mail looses in court. PHP and illegal downloading propriety content is frowned upon by B.M. and they do all they can to frustrate it and eventually ban it completely. New laws have arrived to France and now UK will have draconian measures in the pipeline. Malcode there is the main reason apparently but the other issues could also be a pretext to make it more difficult to go there, and the same issues will come to usenet downloading.
Remember there was nothing wrong in the past with a simple port scan, once you could plea the workings of malcode to escape a ban or risk a three strikes out policy on behalf of your provider if you were caught. Times are changing, folks, so stick to the rules always. "When the going gets narrow, keep your eye on the sparrow",
