Blocked From Reddit?

Post by Pithecanthropus »

Tried logging into my Reddit account from my desktop and I get one word: Blocked. Even the source code has only that word.

The iPhone app seems to be working just fine.

Any thoughts?

Have you tried from a different browser?

Do you by any chance have a VPN you could try using?

Tried the VPN thing first. Same result. Then tried Safari (I use Firefox) and was able to login. Restarted Firefox, and got the same blocked message. I wonder what's up?

Next up, clearing the cache, and deleting cookies...

The issue resolved itself. Go figure.

Could be a momentary bug, and it could be on their side

Reddit is composed of the coding equivalent of match sticks and pop-cycle sticks. It is by far the worst site I regularly visit.
I mean how long as reddit been around and they still cannot find a coder who can write a proper video player and they won't buy one from a 3rd party.
A true shitshow.

Not even duct tape will fix stupid, but it can muffle the sound.

I was wondering if it might have happened because I logged in from the same IP too many times in a short period. Whatever the problem was, I haven't experienced it since.
