    Hey guys I haven't been able to visit BHW without using a proxy. :(

    I didn't know that it was actually up until I used http://downforeveryoneorjustme.com/ to check if it was just me... and it was.

    I didn't do anything wrong, so I don't know why I got blocked.

    Please help me.

    God I hate using a public proxy to be on BHW.

    What should I do?

    Sounds like there's just a glitch happening, though I don't know what would be causing it. But I'm sure if you were banned, your username would have been whacked along with your IP.

    There would be no reason to ban me, I haven't done anything wrong.

    Mmccullam, I don't think it's a ban. I think there is a connection or server issue. I was getting a 502 error the other day whenever I tried to access BHW, but, everything is fine now.

    Someone may have done something not condoned by BHW and you IP was banned. I was PM'ed by one of the mods on this forum because there were 4+ users created under my IP. Still trying to figure out how they did that.

    This happened to me a lot of times in the past, I just changed my DNS to big G's DNS number and the problem was solved...maybe the DNS of your ISP is crappy...

    Same problem again, BHW is blocking my IP for some reason.

    Is BHW blocking your IP or is your ISP blocking BHW's IP/domain? A lot of them have started dropping 'filters' in their routers in some misguided attempt to protect people from having free will...oops, I mean protect them from making a mistake.
