This is odd...

So, about a day ago this site was working fine for me, but over the past 24 hours or so things started to act up.

Whenever I try to go onto this website, and only this website, it times out and won't let me get in. I've tried with my desktop PC, which has the same problem, and another laptop, which works just fine. All three of these computers are using the same wifi on the same router, so I don't know whats up. Right now I am using a VPN on my laptop which is allowing me access, but I have a limited plan on it, so I don't have much time. If there is anyone out there with a solution, one would be much appreciated!

Your laptop is possessed. It's the only answer. Burn it before it's too late.

I've found the issue and I'm getting it fixed with the web host. I found your IP address in the blacklist, but it was for something that shouldn't have been triggering it. Sorry about that.

We'll get it working shortly.

Thank you so much! I knew it had something to do with this site blocking my ip, but I could't quite figure out what I did. :P

Again, thank you for finding and fixing the problem!

No worries. When things got upgraded the other night, the security rules for the servers also got upgraded. It turns out it had a generic rule in there that temp-banned any post with more than a certain # of URL's in it. I matched your IP in the ban list with a post that went over that limit, and found the error that way.

They're fixing it now and everything will clear up for you.

Dang! It seems like it happened again! I think this site just hates me.
This time, all I was trying to do was copy and paste a (lengthy) post that I made on microsoft word to here and then once I hit "reply" it just timed out on me! Is there by any chance a way where I can see all these obscure rules so I don't get permanently IP banned here?

God, I feel so stupid...

Fixed again, for some reason something you're posting kept triggering the antispam security. I found your IP and what was causing it, and removed both.
