A few years ago *someone* took an axe or some such to a fiber optic
bundle in the SF Bay area and killed the internet for all the bay area
south to Salinas. This is exactly what is NOT supposed to happen. Right?

I don't think there's been a decentralized Internet since AOL first
appeared. But it works... For them. Now days Warner, part of AOL Time
Warner, seems to sniff all torrent packets going through their portals
for Warner content and notifies downstream admins.

Reddit (warning; thread title links to piratebay):

BTW, the .org site is easliy reachable this morning from my location. I
