For some reason readers of Naughty Bits were told they were banned for about an hour this afternoon. I got an email from a reader, which does happen once in a great while, and I can resolve that pretty quick. But his IP wasn’t on the banned list. Then I got another email with the same problem about 20 minutes later. I knew something unusual was going on. I tried to log in on another computer in the office and discovered I was banned too. This put the staff here into a frenzy trying to figure out what happened and how to fix it.
I could get in through the WordPress dashboard and see the site and the dashboard function. Everything seemed normal here. About 20 minutes later I tried to log in again and was let back in.
It must have been something on the server side as things seem normal now. Sorry for any anxiety or inconvenience this outage may have caused.
