FIFA: Access denied

Just visited the FIFA website to be presented with:

You don't have permission to access "" on this server.

Reference #18.c39ac4d3.1151325945.2723515

Alan tipped me that FIFA has blocked access from Korean IP addresses due to so many complaints from Koreans. For those who weren’t watching Korea’s last game in World Cup ‘06. There was a dubious penalty decision that didn’t go Korea’s way against Switzerland.

I am more concerned that FIFA think the best way of handling this situation is to block access to their Website. FIFA is firmly on my shitlist.
