    Anybody have a clue what can be wrong on my end?

    I can' t reach the Esee forums or Esee website for about 2 weeks now.
    At first I thought there was a website problem but after it taking so long and mailing with a forum buddy that assured me the site is up and running I figured the issue is at my end. :(

    Right now I'm logged in through an annonimize surfing website and that shows the site and forums without issues. My login works so I guess I'm not banned or anything like that.

    I live in the Netherlands, maybe that helps figuring out what's wrong.
    No result on Linux laptop, Androis phone or tablet.

    Any help / suggestions are much appreciated!

    Sounds like some type of a country block if you are able to get around it through anonymizer. We have nothing blocking you or the Netherlands for our end. I assume that's where your from according to your profile.

    Release/renew your IP address if you can.

    Sometimes specific IPs (or blocks of IPs) can be blocked or blacklisted through websites or domestic ISPs.

    I tried reaching the esee site from a work pc (work at a school) and that's not working either.
    Problem is probably not on my home connection. I'll ask around on a dutch forum to see if other people have troubles...

    Wall-Mark blocks the Forum also.

    Now that's just creepy hanging out at a walmart and using one of their computers to get on this forum.

    I will go to great lengths for training. Each time I have been to the Wall Mark near your house, there has been a bust or somebody near death from an OD in the parking lot.

    Ok... sad news.
    I had some friends from all over the country check.
    It seems no dutch ip adress can reach the Eseeknives.com site anymore. :(
    Other europeans can reach you guys just fine, no issues reported from Sweden, Germany, France or Belgium.
    Is it something I said? ;)

    But seriously... how can we get this fixed?
    Is this food for the Esee webmasters? Can I report this to some dutch internet organisation?
    What should/can I do?
    Going here through this proxy is annoying.

    Is the Netherlands farther north than the Carolinas? Could be the cold weather.

    KnOeFz,

    We get a ton of malicious attacks from all over the world constantly. It's a never ending battle. Our current web host has banned certain countries that are repeat offenders. However, we are looking into being able to block specific IPs so it's only the spammers who get blocked. There's really nothing you or anyone else in your country can do currently. Feel free to PM me.

    John,

    Thanks for looking into this and explaining. I understand you need to take some drastic actions to keep the site up and running. A shame that so many attacks originate from my country :( I'll keep visiting through this proxy, maybe I'll look into setting up a permanent proxy for all my internet surfing, because doing it manually for each visit is kind of annoying.

    I hope you figure out a way to block individual ip's or specific ranges in stead of whole countries soon.
