    Yesterday afternoon AH would not load at home. I primarily use my phone and use WiFi at home. I had no problems with any other websites. I was shut out this morning too. I figured it was a cyber attack. However, when I left my home I could pick it up?? I got home this afternoon and sure enough it would not load the webpage. I restarted our modem and now it works fine. The strange thing was that AH was the only website I could not get. I had no trouble during this time with other websites. Weird. Thought I would mention it.

    Sounds like AH blocked your IP address, probably due to too many hots on the site and it thought you were a spammer. Then, when you reset your modem you got a new IP address and the site let you in.

    Ugh! Such defamation. Or, perhaps a reasonable interpretation of my participation? (n):LOL:

    l had a weird one yesterday .
    I went to repot a spam about male enhancement , and it came up forbidden .
    then l went to shoot doc 4o4 a pm and that was forbidden ,aswell
    I shut the internet down , and being as this computer is used for navigation , nothing would function
    then the internet wouldn't reboot
    so l shut the phone service down ,(its all mobile service on the boat )
    when i restarted it a while later it worked like a charm

    I had to have J unscramble my IP thing several times a year or so ago. Everytime a problem arose, or I tried to open AH and it didn't work and tried again, that was it, all over until J unblocked me. Havent had this issue for a while now.

    If it is happening when you use the quote thing it is a cache problem on your computer. Clear the cache and it will start working again, like magic...
