    Default Blocked ISP

    Several people emailed me to say that they could not connect to GCM.org because their ISP (Internet Service Provider) was blocked.

    We have an aggressive program to ban spammers - we have 20-30 joining per day - and I try and block foreign (Russia, India, etc...) ISP's. Looks like I made a typo and blocked Roadrunner.com.

    It should be fixed now, but please let me know if you have trouble getting onto GCM.org.

    Thanks!

    Just checking, guess I'm on. Gary, Team2Hunt, could not get on! What's up?
    Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.

    I accidentally blocked it a little while ago when getting rid of some spammers. It should be fixed.

    I imagine RR has several IPs, so not everyone should have been affected.

    True - I blocked the whole series beginning with 74. - that's what did it.

    But I see 2 of the people having problems are now looking at the forums, so I guess it is fixed.
