You guys using anon sites or proxy maybe that's why, I've added
Your ips to our whitelist so if you are still unable to access
The site it may be that your ip is blocked on spamhaus.org which we use to auto block spammers?!

We only block a
Few
Countries and it's mostly Asian stuff due to spam

Thanks for that information. I'm still blocked, but i don't know why. Anyone, who understands this and can tell me why i'm blocked??

https://www.spamhaus.org/pbl/query/PBL622508


==EDIT==

i informed myself and it seams that this PBL list contains every dynamic IPs. It does not mean that someone on this list is hacking, spamming or has a kind of maleware. Everyone with dynamic ip (from the list) and not using authentication will come to the spam folder.

So why are you using this list??

This server runs 100s of websites that require spam protection and protection from supposedly ip addresses of offending or dangerous ips based on history or usage feedback , it works good for keeping the server free of garbage but appears to also be blocking average users, it's a bummer that a lot of these services block ips and they expect the end user to figure it out and providers like mine just automatically use these services so somewhere in the middle people miss out on websites because Everyone just wants quick no effort firewall protection - but I have Whitelisted your ips and will see if my providers can set the routers so it's easier for blacklisted ips to view the sites

mh i'm still blocked. I understand, that you are using these list. It's easy and effective. But using PBL ist simply ridiculous. Everyone using a dynamic IP address is listed. So simply spoke, EVERYONE!!! I wonder that you can access from the USA. They should use dynamic IPs as well. Or is the whole USA whitelisted??

Maybe you can read through this https://www.spamhaus.org/pbl/ and stop using this list. I don't know how to use these list on a website/server. But it looks for me that you can use the lists separately instead of all together (https://www.spamhaus.org/zen/) As you can see the "malwares" are listed in SBL, CSS and XBL. PBL is just stupid. Or maybe i just don't see the benefits from that list and someone can point them out to me.

Anakin, it's not up to guru, it's up to guru's providers. He's doing what he can. Calm down.

yeah i understand. Sorry if it felt like i attacked you personally guru. But it's really silly to block everyone with dynamic ip.

Btw. this list is it not at all. I tried to visit gametoast from my university. Since i'm in the university network i have a static IP. And i'm blocked as well. Checked the IP at spamhaus and the university IP is on no block list.

I think it's mostly because of the country you\we are.

Hey everyone!

It has been years since I have been here!

I thought Gametoast was dead but it doesn't seems to be the case aha

I'm sad it's blocked for me (I'm french), it reminded me some great memories and it so cool to see my old modder friends still in action aha.

I'm actually using a proxy to make it works, but that's not the best thing.

Any help? :)

Still, very cool to found the website after all these years!

Things change often with regard to access for countries like Russia all
Of Asia and Germany , Ukraine etc sadly 98% of the traffic from theses places are spam and port attacks that never lead to sales for websites so legit places tend to block them by default. I'll be unblocking .de today

Isn't there an allowed ip address somewhere?

Thing is I think if guru doesn't block these places there would be no site... Servers cost money. O.o
