You can go to whois.net and put in the domains. ub, ftp, stars and absolute all have the same dns info. It takes time for the dns to resolve.

Fulltilt.com and Pokerstars.com come up just fine for me, nothing like the OP. Thread should be closed and deleted imo.

Go to the thread in NVG and you'll see why. https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/29...d-fbi-1020606/

might take some time for it to show up. People are reporting the same thing from regions outside of the US also.

Wait until your ISP updates the DNS, this is not a joke... Maybe it's a hack or something but it's still pretty serious.

I am in Canada.

SpaceGhost-I can confirm 200% that I receive this message when trying to access Full Tilts web page. I was doing research on an article and clicked a link and it happened. I immediately came here to see what news there was and this thread was already here.

It is legit.

DNS propagation takes time. Just wait and your ISP will catch up.
