Why Has Comcast AKA ComCrap Blacked Out ML-Implode?
From ML-Implode Since August 5th, we have been receiving sporadic reports from COMCAST broadband customers (and only COMCAST) customers that they cannot resolve ML-Implode.com, Implode-Explode.com, or any other IEHI sites or those hosted on our servers (such as www.restreportmatters.com). This means they will get an error message in their browsers and cannot see anything on the sites at all (in fact, they cannot even look up the site’s underlying IP numerical address without taking more computer-geeky measures than most people are knowledgeable of). Initially we assumed this was a transient error and just played the waiting game, as these sort of things usually work themselves out in the internet world. However, after a few days, it was still “radio silence” for COMCAST customers who also happened to be our readers. Complaints continued to pour into our inbox. We began advising people to now actually call COMCAST and complain, since perhaps the ISP was not aware of the situation. Fantastically, in response, COMCAST technical support staff is actually telling people that the problem is with them(the customers)! This is despite the fact that if the same people use workarounds — different DNS servers and/or software like OpenDNS –they can access ML-Implode and our other sites just fine. So the problem is provably with COMCAST’s centrally-managed DNS list. Read more at: http://www.mfi-miami.com/2012/08/why-has-comcast-aka-comcrap-blacked-out-ml-implode/
