Anyone get blocked by spamhaus??

Post by LowBuckCanuck »

I went to post a reply to someone and I'm told that my "IP had been blocked because it is blacklisted. For more details please see ~link to the spamhaus site~"

Anyhow, I'm making this post on my phone with a VPN because my IP address is now on the sh*tlist. Has anyone had this happen before? Is spamhaus some kind of scam? What gives?

Hi Lowbuck. Send me a PM with your IP and I'll check its not on the ban list. I'm not sure why that would be though. cheers

I was going to send you my IP Mattel, but it would appear the issue has resolved itself for now. Weird.

(the above two "test" replies were seeing if both my phone and computer could post without a vpn)

Spamhaus has done it again. Posting from my phone's hotspot to skirt it. What an annoyance. I'll send you a PM Mattel.

Hey all,

I’m around but expect this is a Paul job. He updated the software a while back and it has stopped the spam account sign ups, but without guidance from somebody, I wouldn’t know where to start. I will touch base with Paul.
Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart"

In remembrance of my friend ARCHINSTL:

ok, I'll do that irowiki.

edit: it would appear that I cannot take a screenshot of the message because my IP has been unbanned again. This is getting tiresome.

It isn't something we are doing specifically, but next time it happens send it.

It's a specific IP of yours that is blocked, that IP will show up with a link. You would have to get your ISP to work with Spamhaus to get your IP off the list. But I'd like to see which IP it is and what the page is to see if I can help.

If it keeps bring a problem though I can just disable it and we'll see what happens!
