00:00 furbo I find it strange that I've tried two different ISPs to join and both are rejected
00:00 sorear tautologically, if your address is "valid" meaning not blacklisted, then it is not on the blacklist
00:00 furbo just wanted to contribute some code - no big deal
00:01 sorear poke bureaucrats@rosettacode.org
00:01 fedaykin "Rosetta Code"
00:01 sorear as per the /topic
00:01 furbo sorear: ok, thanks
00:05 furbo sorear: out of curiosity, what is usually discussed on this channel ?
00:10 eMBee most recently it's the DNSBL ;-) (it comes up a few times a week) but seriously, people usually ask how to use rosettacode or get help with their first contribution
00:11 eMBee also sozializing of rc contributors
00:11 furbo :-)  anything more to edit than clicking the edit link and pasting the code snippet ?
00:11 eMBee not technically
00:11 furbo anything more to *it*
00:11 sorear sozializing, eh
00:12 eMBee well, you need a <lang> tag
00:12 * sorear thinks that might be a language tell
00:12 eMBee and seperate actual code from comments, as well as a title for the section you are adding
00:12 furbo ok. Very cool site. Is there any relation between the operators of the channel and the site owner/s ?
00:13 eMBee yes, the siteowner mikemol is here
00:13 eMBee sorear: language tell?
00:21 sorear eMBee: it's not a typo I've ever seen a native english speaker make
00:22 eMBee i am not a native english speaker
00:23 eMBee ah, now i get it yes, it is a language tell :-)
00:24 * eMBee makes the weirdest typos, not all of them can be explained by my native language
00:40 furbo that's strange...
00:41 furbo I switched to a different ISP and the channel connection remained intact.
00:42 eMBee are you sure you switched?
00:42 eMBee did your ip change?
00:43 furbo yes - seems like someone put some extra checks when writing this web IRC client :-)
00:43 eMBee oh, the webclient, well, it probably doesn't have a continuous connection
00:43 eMBee in which case the ip address doesn't matter
00:44 furbo oh right - probably using the domain for every message
00:45 furbo and for polling the replies
00:52 furbo I see that all the links regarding finance and monetizing from the site are quite dated - is this not an issue anymore ?
00:54 furbo its a great site - shouldn't be an issue
00:56 eMBee that's a question for mikemol
01:00 furbo ok

15:34 mikemol OIC
15:34 mikemol So, here's why we've been having problems with people seeming to be blacklisted.
15:35 mikemol One of the DNSBLs I was using was access.atlbl.net. It *looks* like that domain expired and was picked up by someone who configured access.atlbl.net to flag all queries as spam, thus poisoning any site using that DNSBL.
15:36 BenBE_ :P
15:36 fedaykin "Atlbl.net" "Atlbl.net"
15:36 mikemol Well, it was nice having no spam for a while. :)
15:36 BenBE_ Yeah. And no Posts ;-)
15:37 mikemol DNSBLs were only applied on account creation.
15:37 mikemol Anyway, the offending DNSBL has been removed from the set.

22:33 mikemol It looks like removing that dnsbl solved the problem.
