Thanks for the reply. Is there a site administrator we could contact and ask?

Can the site be accessed while using a cloud-based VPN service?
I have no idea.

Hey nrvous, I sent you an email with some questions.

We implemented a new anti-spammer system that uses blocks based on IP addresses that have a history of being bad actors. Yes, some cloud services are blocked, because cloud services are often used by spammers in an attempt to mask their actual IPs.

We aren't done trying to fix the spam problems, so feedback like this is helpful and necessary.

90% of spam comes from specific domains

Just a fact of life.
Got a list of those domains for us to use?

Looks like the block bans are gone - and the Pakistani and Indian spammers are back in force.
I set up a country-wide block on Pakistan with the new system, hopefully that gets us back to where we were before (in addition to having the features of the new system)

I haven't looked up IP addresses in a couple of days. I'll go back to doing it. I think that there is still one Pakistani spammer here, but he(?) may be Indian. They like to leave little clues that are like signatures.
