RePress - WordPress plugin turns your site into proxy for thePirateBay (all4xs.net)

Context, from the Dutch press release: the Dutch copyright organization (not quite as evil as MAFIAA) won a court case. Soon Dutch ISPs (including XS4ALL, started by hackers to bring internet to the masses) will be forced to block the Pirate Bay. A Dutch web host (https://greenhost.nl/) made this plugin to make it easier to set up proxies.

Is this really an open proxy? Or do you configure it to proxy only certain websites?

You can configure it for any site, see some examples here: https://all4xs.net/uncensored-website/

This title was not very inspiring for the HN crowd. It should have been:

"Magically uncensor any website on the internet from your own WordPress installation"
