Okay, after trying off and on for several hours, I can finally connect to Wikileaks again.
I have no idea why it was only me experiencing the problems connecting unless it WAS my ISP. (which I suspect Was the case)
I have a theory
remember it's only a theory
by Patriot Act Law, directives given to all ISP's
to cooperate with national security protocol.
since wikileaks is such a bad thing for national security
these days. Certain networks are in the process of re-routing
web traffic to go through government controlled servers
therefore monitoring what the networks clients do, see
online. I believe this is what happened to my ISP (Century Link)
a few weeks ago. During the re-routing process, there will be some
down town and intermittent 404 pages as certain data packets
are scanned and logged by IP address. The gov servers can
then see WHO downloaded WHAT from WHERE and wikileaks
is one of those targeted for data mining. It doesn't matter
if you're using a proxy server to surf. these new protocols
will re-route through gov servers to be recorded if you request
certain web sites from your browser. Doing a trace route on
your computer to see what servers you hop through to a web site
will not be valid, it is spoofed.
You are no longer anonymous on the internet and they are
using everyone's ISP to do it. Like I said they are not doing
the entire internet at once. They are doing it 1 ISP network
at a time so nobody gets suspicious when there is a total
lockout of the internet by everybody at once. Therefore, you
may be down this week and somebody else here will be down
next week, etc....
take notice of my thread posted about internet web site
problems a few weeks ago below
