Series of information are simply disappearing on the way to their destination. A lot of people believe that firewalls and dead IP addresses are to blame, but the volume of dropped traffic indicates that there may be other, still unrevealed forces at work. Internet Black Holes work by getting us cut out from a website or not letting our mails reach their destinations.
