I don't know if anyone else is getting the DNS Spam Blacklist thing when trying to access the regular http://www.dg forum.....(I can only access with www2)....I'm not sure if its a bug or if I'm doing something wrong.

If further information is needed, just let me know

It means your IP adress, or more likely, some provider/something along the re-routing way, is blacklisted for spam. I get it often, it never lasts more than a day.

This has been happening for about two weeks now. Although it did clear up for a day. But its still happening. So I'm not sure.

trust me on this one, it's your ISP you have a service provider that uses rotating IP address's, therefore once in awhile your IP will be the same as some random spammer/bot. it will come and go as long as you use that provider.

Thats pretty much it. I will be replacing that form of spam checking in the future, but have held off on it due to developing I'm doing now. I'll be integating the forums much better with the game and having much better spam protection when I'm done. I just don't want to keep patching code the way I've been doing it. I'm redoing alot behind the scenes lately and more efficient ways of upgrading everything is a top priority.
