But it was a gambling site. It was gambling with the livelihoods of our employees and shareholders Razz
BTW, this thread (only) is very unresponsive. Is being attacked or something? Conspiracy!

I doubt it is a premeditated attack on free software, itís probably more a miscategorised webpage. I bet there are quite a few pages being blocked that donít pose a threat. Sure itís unfortunate that a page used by the Free Software Foundation was blocked, in a political sense, but I donít think there is any maliciousness behind it, and if it is raised with Microsoft they will probably get it sorted.

In work we use a Sophos proxy and it blocked sourceforge for a while, but it was rectified and it is ublocked again.
