    I'll shout here, since the proxies I'm using are not allowing me to send a private message to the mods or admins (At least it looks like that). I have seen similar threads on here - people bitching about not being able to get on to BHW. Same happened to me. My ISP (and a few others in the country I live) are blocking BHW for some reason. When I try to access it while using their DNS servers, the domain does not even resolve. When switching to Google public DNS (8.8.8.8), it resolves, but because of their filters, I still can not access the forum. Anyone have a solution, besides having a VPN setup? Thanks

    Of course I tried all the possibilities. I'm network admin myself, and I'm sure I'd think about something if there was anything else to do to get it working. I've sent a request to the ISP to explain why it's blocked. Awaiting reply from them now.

    Sad countries. They must want to make sure you don't hit gold online as otherwise you won't be a lower class citizen and they wont easily be able to control you.

Trace complete. So, basically, as I can see, my provider is not blocking anything. I just called them on the phone, and it seems that the link breaks at volumedrive.com, which is not in Latvia anymore. Their advice was to contact mods here on BHW, but since I can't send a PM using this proxy, I'll have to wait a bit to do it. Darn...

    Damn. Even the formatting got messed up because of this proxy :( Shaken not Stirred, your post has been reported for expressing hate. I hope you understand that keeping your mouth shut is gold :p

    Hate? I was just saying thats why else would they want to block BHW. Lets hope your country does block proxies soon as I don't think you understand English?

    You obviously don't read. I just posted that the problem is NOT in this country, but with volumedrive.com. Also, saying that we're lower class people is racism, so STFU.

    Classes are not races, theres lower, middle and higher.
    Go read a book.

    That's not what the discussion was about. I was saying, that you can not rate anyone, without knowing anything about them/the country they live in and so on. If you read a book, you'd find out that in 2008 Latvia had the highest economical growth in EU, the currency value still is 3rd strongest in the world and the internet access here for normal people costs $30 for 500 MBit/s. You go read a book :p

    sometimes i cant even though others
    on my yahoo messenger can.
    i read somewhere a while back thats its
    probably bhw has blocked certain ip ranged
    due to some kind of attacks - dont no if thats
    true or not . but just do like the rest of us if
    u cant get in - use a web proxie - till it fixes
    itself
