Topic notification down?

Postby PurpleDave » Sat May 02, 2015 4:42 pm

I recently realized I haven't received any Topic Reply Notifications in about two weeks. My e-mail address has not changed, I'm still subscribed, and I revisited the last one I received just in case. And today someone replied to my own post on a thread I was subscribed to, but I got nothing.

No changes on the forum or updates that I know of... did you do the normal check for spam folders, etc?

I did an account-wide search for "fbtb", which turned up a bunch of TR notifications (the most recent being from April 19). I check my Spam folder regularly to make sure stuff doesn't get lost there, and pointedly checked it yesterday. I even dug through all the Deleted e-mails to see if anything ended up there. Nothing. I know that if you receive a TR notification, you won't get any more for that topic until you actually click through the link, so I did that with the most recent one just in case I'd forgotten. So unless Hotmail is refusing incoming e-mails from FBTB altogether, I don't know where things can be getting lost. And that is a distinct possibility. I know this site has been blocked at work for months as being "unsafe" (as opposed to being a violation of company policy, like a porn site), while all of the other LEGO blogs are fine.

I'll kick it along to Ace, and see if he has any insight on the email thing.

Unsafe? Do they give any other further information on why? The site I'm working at has a terribly strict filter and I haven't had any issues with this or other LEGO sites.

I tried to get more info, but all I can remember is that I started getting information that the site was a flagged as unsafe for some reason. I wasn't the only one, as another member of my LUG posted about it to our list.

Now all I get is bumped to a Bing search when I type the URL directly, and if I click on the link that pops up there I get a generic "cannot load page" error with no mention of why.
