Hi there. I hope this is an appropriate question to ask here.  I'm not sure exactly when this began because I don't visit the site regularly, but I currently can't connect to it from my home IP address.  Interestingly, if I connect to a VPN service like Private Internet Access, it works fine.  This is the only site where it seems to be a problem, so I'm pretty sure it's not something on my end.  The symptom suggests something like the webserver restricting access to my IP address (or a block of addresses that includes mine).  I'm connected through the VPN now in order to post this.

@WildLemur could you send me a PM with your home IP address, so that I can look it up in server logs and see what's going on? We definitely didn't choose to block ya, yet I can't see anything in logs that indicates recently used IPs were caught by security.
