Since is an anycast IP, is it possible that this isn't
related to PirateBay but more related to Cogent  having a dispute with
Cloudfare ?

It is counter intuitive for a transit provider to refuse
business/traffic, but then again, Cogent has been involved in counter
intuituve disputes in the past.

I note that this has been going on since last night (at least).

It hasn't been resolved, nor has Cogent issued a statement about it (or
has it ?)
