TMnet DNS Blackhole

While browsing Alexa 100 Top Sites Malaysia result that you can find it here.

http://www.alexa.com/site/ds/top_sites?cc=MY&ts_mode=country&lang=none

One site don't return any thing. Just a blank white page. This site is among top 100 Malaysia sites and it's just return a blank page that is not right. Using dig command I found this result.

blocked.tm.net.my

My questions.

Does Tmnet has the ability to block any websites blanket block to all Tmnet users?
Does Jaring and any other ISP's have this ability?

This type of block is what we call DNS blackhole or blacklist. It's can be used for stopping SPAM or stopping people from accessing websites.

Refer to Djbdns for DNS blackhole.
