Alfredo, just to clarify, I did not meant to imply filtering/blocking was
"fair," where that implies "justified" or "right."  I only meant that it
seemed understandable why AT&T would engage in this behavior, not that we
shouldn't actively organize and agitate against it. I also believe we need
a high amount of clarity around the specifics of any filtering event to
best assess how to proceed. You can see via my @BaghdadBrian account on
Twitter that I've taken some steps to try and understand why it's been
filtered, unfortunately they didn't get very far.

Regards

Brian
