Hi, what are you looking for?

You Broadband has published a list of sites blocked

In what appears to be an unprecedented move by an ISP, You Broadband had apparently published on its website, a list (it says) of websites blocked "pursuant to Regulatory guidelines and interim orders passed by High Courts." Hat tip: Gautam John Typically, users are not informed about which websites are blocked, so this was a welcome move from the ISP. In the list are: 1.

That page appears to have been removed from Chakpak: http://www.chakpak.com/find/images/kamasutra-hindi-movie 7. A page on complaintsboard.com which appears to now have been removed: http://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/narang-access-pvt-ltd-c426988.html?sort=ratea 8. A page from legal news site BarAndBench, which has been removed following an order from the Delhi High Court: 9. A similar page from Silobreaker 10. A page from the website Telegraph India:  http://epaper.telegraphindia.com/PUBLICATION/TT/TT/2012/03/19.INDEX.SHTML 11. Smashits.com, which, incidentally, was acquired by Saavn. 12. Code sharing site Pastebin 13. A couple of YouTube videos which have now been removed…
