I am unable to access neither cgef, nor peelified, from Canada. I get presented either with a login dialog, or a 403 Forbidden page. What's up with that?

PEEL does some "geocoding" during sign-up due to a very bad "benevolent:malign" sign-up ratio coming from certain countries. I'm not even sure you can call it a ratio if one of the two is zero.

Both PEEL and CGEF block traffic from some IP addresses/netblocks based on bad experience in the past. That is however not geo-related. The blocked IPs haven't changed in a long while though.

I say let's just blame Books.

Yeah. By the way look out for that guy named BannedTroll.

Well, FYI, you're blocking my university and my ISP. So, no support whatsoever from me or other affected Futurama fans. Not that I'd want to waste the bandwidth of a site with such a moronic policy, so it's all even in the end.

Please ban/disable/delete my account.

You're welcome smile


Would've been more constructive to tell me the IP range in question. Canada is not blocked as a whole just yet.
