Doesn't work;

Either the address you are accessing this site from has been banned for previous malicious behavior or the action you attempted is considered to be hostile to the proper functioning of this system.

The detected reason(s) you were blocked are:
Bothost / Fake ISP.

Your IP, and Domain Name (if resolvable) has been logged to a local honeypot, along with the referring page (if any), QUERY, POST, User Agent, time of access, and date. Please either 1. Stop the bad behavior, or 2. Cease accessing this system.

I sent them a message through the "Contact Us" link directing them to this thread.

Not seen any issues and I visit there several times a day.

New Joe 28 Apr 2012 17:58

I am not a member, I just use a standard ip, not hiding behind any proxi.
Looks like they need to sort themselves out

It loads fine now. Give it a try.

Mariner1 29 Apr 2012 02:29

Error 503 : Service Temporarily Unavailable

socialteenz 29 Apr 2012 03:43

Loads fine at my end..

I have accessed from 4 IP's without a problem, this morning I used 5 different proxy servers again no problem.

Flush your DNS Cache and cookies then try again.

Mariner1 29 Apr 2012 09:15

Flushed cache etc,still get same error.This is crazy

AdrianH 29 Apr 2012 09:53

Have you tried via a proxy? The site is definitely working, I even tried vbadvanced.net which immediately redirects to .com.

Hmm, this is odd >> http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.c...vbadvanced.com << this says the site is down BUT if you click the URL on that page it opens the site perfectly for me.

I'll drop another message to Brian and Kevin for you.

(at this moment there are over 150 people online at vbadvanced.)

From the early reports it looks like vbadvanced setup some sort of aggressive anti-spam/hack software like ZB Block. In this case I would expect most people to be able to access it but there will be a few who can't because the software believes they are unsafe users- perhaps due to geographic location, IP address being used for malicious purposes in the past, or even an active virus on the system.

vBAdvanced has been notified according to kh99 so that is it. They can decide if they want to block some legit potential customers in the name of safety or not- the fact 100 people can get to the forum without issue won't help the handful that can't.

Using a proxy will be the only hope for affected users if vBAdvanced doesn't disable or white-list these people, but proxies are often blocked by these programs anyway so you will need to find one that works.

I'm not sure what their email address is over there but if you're locked out try emailing "[email protected]" or "[email protected]" vbadvanced (dot) com and let them know your IP address, MAYBE they can white-list you somehow.

If you know how to run tracert, run: tracert www.vbadvanced.com

And paste the results in the email, if they aren't using something like ZB Block that will be helpful information.
