Would you block access to a kiddie porn site? Do you block access to "warez" sites? Both are illegal. I'm not convinced that phishing is illegal in its own right (except possible as "passing off"). Phishing sites only work because Banks won't invest in strong authentication, and users are stupid. Why should it become the ISPs problem to fix those inadequacies? Some banks in Europe use one-time-password token things (such as SecurID). Are those banks being caught out by phishing?
