SternNation.com Forums

by on May.23, 2012, under Blog

For those that were on the older forums “AFN” & “SFSN” may have wondered where I hang out or where some of those regulars are. Well you can catch us over on http://sternnation.com.

For others that have no idea what I am talking about. There are many Stern show related forums, course many are either too paranoid to discuss certain topics or have made certain topics and discussions “taboo” and have banned any discussion they feel makes them look bad. Of course admins can run their sites any way they wish. But I for one only hang out on forums where moderation is usually used to clean up spammers and everything else goes, for the most part.

So for those who were part of the “AFN” & “SFSN” crowd or are just looking for a forum that is less strict then I recommend checking out http://sternnation.com a place where show fans, show haters, any fan of talk radio, or none of the above can just enjoy a place to post about anything and all have a place to hangout.

Update (12/23/2012): See below the post for updated proxy lists added 2 new proxies.

A week or so ago word of UK internet providers forced to block the Pirate Bay’s website made news around the net. I won’t get into all the details and politics surrounding the case as it’s been fleshed out on many many websites already.

You can read up on a high court ruling forcing internet providers to block the pirate bay’s website here:

Update 6/21/2012: Seems BT is now blocking Pirate Bay “BT becomes the sixth major UK ISP this year to block The Pirate Bay but there‚Äôs plenty of ways to get around the bans” news source here: http://www.techweekeurope.co.uk/news/bt-block-pirate-bay-83416
Don’t fret BT users keep reading below how to bypass provider blocks to regain access to Pirate Bay.

What we will go over is proving how futile such a block is as there are countless ways around the block. There is even a way to use Google cache to bypass the block.
