    Hello, I hope someone might be able to help me. Starting two weeks ago, when I try to access my favorite web site, I get "page unavailable". I thought the server was down , but found out others could get on. Then I found that this site can't be accesssed thru any computer thru my ISP Cox Internet I have tried to reach the webmaster, but my mail is blocked as well. Is there some way for me to get back on this site? Someone suggested IDMASK, but it says my browser is not supported. Your help is appreciated!

    How did you discover that Cox Internet has the site blocked? Would you want to post the URL so others could try?

    I have and they say it is not their problem, for me to contact the website administrator. I have tried but an answering machine is as far as I have gotten.

    A second call to my ISP tech dept confirms that the blocked action must be at the web site end. The site cannot be accessed from ANY Cox ISP computer.

    in that case someone with one of your isp's ip allocation has misbehaved and because they cannot isolate the one ip address to ban them they ban the whole range.i struck this with a site i wanted to join but at least they emailed me and told me why,but they relented and let me in, provided my email address was not linked to my isp.
    that was 3yrs ago and i still cannot use my normal email.
    try using one of the proxy programs where they don't see your actual ip

    I can get to the site with Comcast, so I tend to agree with dia, that the ISP domain is blocked by the website. You might want to try an online proxy to get there.
