    As far as I know it isn't. If we were trying to deliberately block you, we'd have also blocked your member account not just one IP address. Since you can post, my guess is that you are having a network route issue between your IP address and our hosting company. If you want to PM me your normal IP address and/or IP range, I'll try to check it on our end. Otherwise, it may just be a peering issue that may resolve itself in time.

    seems the problem at ISP level.

    Aloha LWMark- I have sporadically had similar problems. I could connect to every other website (lots of them) but NOT to wilders or castlecops.

    I posted this situation at DSLR to see if I was the only one with the problem. LINK.

    As of yesterday, of the folks who replied to my post I was the only one with the problem.

    As of today, however, a few other posters have reported similar problems in connecting to wilders.

    Thinking that my IP might be blocked because of spam from our area, I asked toadbee to contact you (because I couldn't connect to wilders at all).

    Then POOF! Just now, I am able again to connect. My guess is that there is a problem somewhere along the line just before or after the yipes.com hops...
    Thank goodness I can again connect. I was having severe withdrawal pains. Have I told you lately that I LOVE Wilders, & deeply appreciate you & all the others who make it possible? Well... I just told you again.:-*

    Apparantly, the routes to you and a couple others who had problems today all pass through that hop in Philadelphia. I had reports just these past couple hours from people using an ISP in Australia, in the South-Eastern US, a couple in CA, USA, along with you in Hawaii - all with the same problem. Since CastleCops and Wilders use the same webhosting company, clearly it must have been a peering issue between our host and the common pathway out to those effected.
