Indeed, despite being a computer professional of sorts, the message made little sense, since it wasn't MY IP, etc.kublikhan wrote:It's not you personally that was blocked. You see the site used a service called CloudFlare to help speed up the site. And since we were getting flooded with spam lately, I am guessing we started using the spamhaus service to try and filter out the spammers. Unfortunately, a few spammers also use the cloudflare service. So Spamhaus blacklisted all of CloudFlare's servers. When you see the IP# that Spamhaus is complaining about, it's actually one of CloudFlare's IP# that is blacklisted. CloudFlare tried to get more aggressive with taking down bad actors on it's network, but hackers started using CloudFlare's takedown method as a door for launching DDOS attacks. It's a big pain in the butt and it is users like us that get caught in the middle of this mess.
Anyway, I'd just like to thank the staff for working to get us back up and running, and for trying to do something about those damn spammers.
