Wikipedia blocked? Again?

I have been trying to access Wikipedia since yesterday but keep getting a Connection Timeout. Has the PTA (stupidly) blocked it again?

    Orkut gave me a heart attack tooooo! Now what’s the fun of going on if you can’t browse through people’s profiles. Now I can’t even look at the profiles of people I don’t like cause they’ll know I looked at them! :)

    :D. yeah, the Orkut feature was a little off-putting. my guess is whatever mkt research/ customer behavior they tapped into, was not qute representative of the overall way that people use Orkut. hopefully, they’ll catch on to the changed usage patterns soon and adapt accordingly.

    People this orkut feature made me mad too and after looking in help section i found that if you disbale that function in settings (as quratulain khan mentioned) others wont be able to know that u viewed their profile
    BUT then you also wont get to know who visited yours !!
    i think they should scrap this new thing !!

    and Wikipedia is working for me too !!
