BSNL Broadband blocking wordpress.com stylesheets?

CSS stylesheets (what gives most websites and blogs today their menus, arrangements, backgrounds, colors) of wordpress.com sites/blogs are NOT loading from my BSNL Broadband internet connection in Pune, since 3 or 4 days. There seems to be no connection problem with anything else.. just the Wordpress.com CSS stylesheets seems to be getting blocked.

Major spanner tossed into some work I was doing. Fortunately, managed to connect through a mobile net stick.

The problem with government-owned services : how to give feedback?? If anyone knows, please spread the word to BSNL... this glitch must be affecting all wordpress.com blogs and websites right now - they're looking like simple webpages from the old days.

Hi Nikhil, I was facing the same problem. Try changing your DNS to Google's...hopefully that will solve the issue. Refer to this link-

Thanks Chintan, but I found a way better workaround: TOR Browser.

Relying on Google is even worse than relying on BSNL.. they've got the big guns to really track you and misuse your activity data!
