vts - your IP is not blocked, I'm sorry to say it's a networking issue.

a little history - years ago got hacked repeatedly and got a ton of .gov and .mil traffic
a few years back, i put in place cloudflare's proxy and moved our server to locked-down bare-metal

today, you can ONLY access peakoil if your go through the cloudflare proxy
and non-cloudflare traffic gets : " 403 forbidden " messages.

people have problems with this setup since your DNS must resolve to cloudflare proxy.

Fixes to this issue:

1) reboot PC and or modem
2) use google's DNS servers
3) try a different computer or internet connection

when we move servers again, I will attempt to put in place a more permanent solution.

I get the "forbidden" message from time to time. I laid to the quirks of my internet hook up through the phone lines. It usually goes away in an hour or so.

I've notified admin. It may be a cloudflare thing.
