This is interesting and I wonder how it happened. What I don't understand is why my vps ip is banned from accessing livejournal.com especially when I was using proxies with SB to search for expired domains. So what happened exactly? I mean, we all know that you shouldn't be search/scraping without proxies or at least I have always used elite proxies for this. The question is, why was my vps banned from accessing livejournal.com shortly after searching for expired domains there? Somewhere my ip address leaked out but how. This has me wondering if my ip address is banned elsewhere.
