    I noticed yesterday that the notable Russian torrent tracker that many of us rely on has finally gone into the great firewall here in the UK. I was surprised it lasted as long as it did -- presumably because the UK's internet providers think that their customers are just too dumb to use Google translate -- even if the facility is built into Chrome.

    Not sure who they think they're punishing here. I'm pretty sure it isn't even based in Russia any more. I could swear I read it was actually banned in Russia. Anyway, site still accessible via free VPN. So nyah, nyah nya nyah, nyaaah, motherfuckers!

    Fortunately I don't live in Europe. It's working without a problem here without the need of a VPN.

    Yeah that big tracker from ru has actually been blocked in Russia since 2015. Quite funny. The bigger russian site was then mostly used by people not in russia. No such blocks in my country luckily.

    Still seems to be working for me, perhaps depends on your UK ISP

    It's not blocked, it's just being DDoS'ed

    It's not working from any VPN server (UK, US, Netherlands, etc.). It's just down. Funny, but after software manufacturers like Microsoft, Adobe, etc. left Russia because of war in Ukraine, some officials started talking about unblocking the tracker and therefore "legalizing" piracy. Also TV news announcers speak about "nationalizing" IKEA warehouses, etc. in Russia after Western sanctions LOL. So perhaps soon we will see the very first officially Pirate country.

    Went down for me as well, U.S. here. Didn't matter if I was on or off of my VPN. Did some reading around the web, according to what I found there was some issue of what was referred to as 'DNS hacking'. Came back on again last night but is back off again today. If you Google "Ru******* proxy and mirror sites" you will find alternative ways to access the site that work :)

    funny that rutracker can't be access through VPN but it can directly here but i noticed a huge drop of seed/peer. A lot of my favourite everyday "warez" ru sites can't be access anymore with and without VPN here such as those football streams, anime, comic books, multitrack source. All down. It won't be long before new VPN package service coming up with access to Russian sites. War will always be seen as opportunity by some as usual, hmm.

    Yes, writing the name like it's written in the browser would be warez linking and that's not allowed here.

    Most of the time its the ISP's they do this like its something like an act of patriotism or something, its similar to those stupid so called instagram influencers and their idiotic pics when there is something terrible happened like a storm or earthquake or famine or just now war. Tagging their stupid pics posing with some absurd facial expressions, like that pic is going to change something.

    I'm also with Virgin, so perhaps it's just our ISP? I didn't realize there was a Dutch mirror. Bookmarking that one.

    Ah, it's just come back on for me. Musta been that DDoS attack. Sorry folks. Kinda weird that I couldn't connect via my own ISP but as soon as I connected to a Russian server on my VPN, I got straight in.
