Angry Accessing Xplornetsucks.com

Hi all, I've been watching these forums for a few weeks now. It's nice to see I'm not the only one who is receiving lousy service (getting worse as time goes on).

I'm currently using xplornet satellite as my internet access (no alternative for where I live) and in the last couple of days I haven't been able to access this site. I was however able to use an encrypted proxy to get through to post this message.

I'm sure everyone around here know much more than I do on the matter, is this a simple dns problem, or is xplornet censoring this site?

Thanks

Try a new DNS server
Censoring a site via a 'glitch' in DNS servers would be very bad, now wouldn't it.

Alternate DNS router settings. Put in your router or computer.

Well, I'm using the standard Xplornet DNS server, and I haven't had any problems accessing this site.

Thanks for the tips, but they didn't seem to resolve the problem. I am mostly curious at this point, Xplornetsucks seems to be the only site that is giving me this problem.

Did Something put xplornetsucks.com into your hosts file to block access? Maybe a protection program on your system?

Odd...

I have also been unable to access this site from my computer at home since about the beginning of February. I am using a computer at a hotel right now. I even tried to send an e-mail to the address of whoever sent me the e-mail when I first joined, and was unable to do so.

I also noticed that I can't read any posts unless I log in. Has there been a change made whereby the general public can't read the posts, you have to join the forum and become a member? (And is this how you really want things?)

Hi amber and yes a few things have changed... please contact xplornet about your inabillity to access this site... would make an interesting contibuting factor to the class action law suit that I am trying to organise. I would love to be able to confirm you are in fact being blocked... can you write doen the DNS server numbers you have at home BEFORE you contact xplornet support...

as far as the registration goes, its more of a security issue for spammers and such ...

207.179.130.2
207.179.130.3

are my wireless DNS servers if you want to try them... but please write down your home DNS server IP and post so we can check to see if xplornet is in fact blocking you from this site..

Another way to see if an ISP is blocking a website(or just filtering the packets with particular site definitions, to prevent access).... Was just reading some stuff on foreign country's blocking legitimate sites in the name of censorship of life....

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...=Google+Search
Then click "cached" in the result of the link to the forums..
Or.
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...om&btnG=Search

It's like a proxy with Google as the proxy...Also is a way school kids by-pass school filters...Just read the cached page(pics)..Until the school blocks Google..


How about access to my Blog?
http://xplornetsucks.blogspot.com/

And an interesting Google question and answer, where the writer says that only a CRTC order can allow Canadian ISP's to illegally block websites..But the CRTC does not regulate the internet..According to the CRTC

Can the forum be reconfigured to allow anyone to read, but only registered members to post? I know when I was first researching Xplornet I visited a few forums to look at their content before registering. If I hadn't been able to read the posts here, I probably would have just gone somewhere else.
