  1. Spamhaus.org said that my ip is flagged as unsafe. I also lost access to minecraftforum.net from my ip, again, for no reason! if I'm banned, please tell me why.
    This is not a ban appeal! Il'l PM like every ban appeal only if I'm banned (I think there is no reason. I did nothing bad. I read all of the rules. I always do that on most things.
  2. I'm not sure what to tell you. From what I can tell you're not banned in any of our systems. If you were IP banned from our site, you wouldn't have been able to post this. What can't you access exactly on our end and what error do you get?
  3. I think he means the servers and the Minecraft forums.

    Does anyone else use the internet often in your home?
  4. Capture.PNG Somehow the problem was solved, after 2 ip resets (diconnecting the router from the electricity)
    The problem returned! (it's the same problem)

  5. up there is an update above!
  6. Well by looking at that picture it looks like your IP has been flagged as unsafe by spamhaus.org

  7. I did nothing, i believe this is an error, and there is a griefer with a similar IP to mine.
  8. OK time for the fake admin to work. Typically EMC is using a minecraft server engine called CraftBukkit++ which is a modified version of CraftBukkit. Now CraftBukkit++ uses Spamhaus' IP blacklist to deny access to those who have "bad IP's". I really don't know how you got banned from spamhaus but you might be using a proxy. If you are I suggest you remove it.
  9. Uh oh... Actually Spamhaus doesn't care about griefers. You cannot have the same IP address as someone else or else there will be a major internet problem. IP is your "address" so if you have the same thing as another person then we have a problem. If you think this is a mistake I suggest you dispute this in spamhaus' website http://www.spamhaus.org/ Also spamhaus bans proxy IP's so stop using it!
  10. I didn't meant that I have the SAME IP, I meant i had a similar to a one who needs to be blacklisted.
    The only thing I know about a proxy is it's existance, and that it's about the network. Capture.PNG
  11. From http://www.spamhaus.org/xbl/:

    Seems like your PC or other PCs in your network got infected with viruses/malware.
  12. I can't pay via internet at all (no credit card).
    Besides, I have an anti virus: Avast!.
  13. You should do a full scan of your computer then.
  14. LOL! Avast is a joke! Go get AVG or a Norton 360 free trial! Avast is a joke, cannot detect virus'. I did a test myself, I purposely installed a trojan on a VirtualBox environment and did not detect anything, when I did another clean test I used AVG and it detected it, so did Norton.
  15. Are you sure? I dont see what you see... *sarcasm*
  16. Have you tried removing your IP from the PBL? Scroll down to the bottom of this page and follow the instructions:

    Just in case I'd try Malwarebytes in Safe Mode first(I'm assuming you're running some flavor of Windows.). Make sure it updates before you do a full scan: http://www.malwarebytes.org/

    If you click the link in the screenshot you provided (PBL1129452), you'll see more information about what is being blocked and why. There are a range of IP addresses being blocked.

    The reason seems to have nothing to do with Minecraft, I'd run the scan to make sure you have nothing malicious on your PC. By unblocking your current IP you are only unblocking one of the addresses in that range. You may have to do it again if your address changes.

  17. im not sure what to tell you, im not IT guy. if you cant play minecraft at all then maybe try to go to the library and use a free computer :)
  18. Picture update!
    Libraries in israel don't really allow users to download files. and they have an anti-game filte... that's how lame libaries in Israel are. LOL
  19. I actually have the opposite experience. I usually tell my friends/family to avoid Norton and install Avast. Upon doing so with a few of them, Avast found things that Norton didn't. AVG is another one I would recommend next to Avast though.
