The internets: you’re doing it wrong

Insty links to this. When I click on it, I get this message:

You have been Banned from viewing this Blog.
There are most likely two reasons for this.
1. You were abusive or a troll in the comments section
2. You are from a Forum that I do not want viewing my Blog
3. You are in the countries of Russia, Iran or People’s Republic of China

If you feel this was a mistake contact me at tpblogeditor at gmail dot com.
If you are from the Country of Russia, People’s Republic of China Tell your leaders to embrace true freedom and not political oppression and I might let you back in.

I’ve never been to that site before, I’m in the USofA, and I didn’t get there from a forum. I guess they don’t like traffic from Insty. Seems redirecting traffic from one of the higher traffic blogs is not beneficial for building a readership. And note that I wasn’t actually banned since I managed to get around it in about 0.5 seconds.

Update: Seems to be fixed now.

    Hey I know that guy from Ed Morrissey’s chatcast. I can ask him what the hell is up.

  2. Bitter Says:

    I can get there from both Glenn’s site and yours. I suspect their method of banning trolls is probably too broad and you’ve become a victim.

    Since they run ads on their site, this seems like a big mistake to make.

  3. SayUncle Says:

    actually, i think they fixed it. I can get there now.

  4. BillH Says:

    I banned myself from that site… infolinks suck!

  5. John Says:

    The Russia, China, Iran line I really don’t understand. If anything, people in those nations need access to more of the Internet, not less.

  6. Sigivald Says:

    It seems pretty farkin’ stupid to ban individual Russians and Chinese from reading your words because their governments are farkin’ stupid.

    What John said – keeping the oppressed in those countries in the dark isn’t going to help anyone, let alone help them get liberal government.

    Hey Now!

    Ya’ll go easy on cracker boy here now. (In others…me!) It was an issue with a Plug in, which I removed. Seems it might have an issue or two with WordPress 2.8

    Anyhow, ya’ll should be able to view it. I was told before that the silly thing wasn’t working right. I should have removed it then, but I didn’t. *facepalm*

    Anyhow, hope you like the blog…

    and… Also, Infolinks pays well, so does Adsense, click some links ya’ll, I need the scratch! Paypal is there too, I am a full time writer. Unemployed since 2005, well, 2000, if you don’t count the short term stuff..

    Again, thanks for the heads up and let me if you still have problems.

    Cute that it now links right to Payal if you try to post a comment. Whore much?

  9. Kristopher Says:

    A lot of folks are banning third worlders because spammers are using them to defeat turing tests and place comment spam.

  10. Patrick Says:

    it does? I see a comment field below the posts… gotta scroll down more man.

  11. Patrick Says:

    I fixed that… you did need to scroll down more. But, I fixed it. I moved the paypal and the donation request further down, AFTER the comment field.

    Anyhow, thanks for letting me know that it was a problem.

    Um, I didn’t see anything in the spam folder or in the moderation que. So, I really do not know what you are talking about.

    I do use some spam filtering, so, if you’re not able to post a comment, I don’t know what to tell you. I am able to comment just fine.

  15. Patrick Says:

    As for the comment by doubleplusundead. I won’t engage him. If bringing up stuff that happened way before this election and before I decided that I did not want to be on the side of the political fence that encourages racism, Identity politics, and Anti-Militarism; fine, let him have at it. I am not going to waste my bandwidth on it. I’ve got better things to do with my time and energy.

  16. Roberta X Says:

    Pat, you’re at best a shill, and the “racism” smear without links to back it up is mere mudslinging. So, gee, you’re all afeeeerd of firearms in the hands of honest men, you like to call your critics racists while yourself being prejudiced against individuals hailing from China or Russia. Also you seem to think miliarism is a good thing.

    …I’m seeing a mix of the nastiest bits of the Left and the Right in your words and actions. You’re trolling for something and if I had to guess, I’d suppose y’were a “progressive” on a Nazi hunt. Good luck with that! You’ll find ’em in the loser pool, where they belong. Bedarned if I’ll play. It’s a pity Insty linked to ya but there is no accounting for tastes.

  17. Patrick Says:

    Also you seem to think miliarism is a good thing.

    I think I may have used the wrong term. I was referring to the Liberal left’s hating of our Military and how they like to disrespect them.

    I am not for a Military state. Sorry if that was the impression that I made.
