So I signed up with Supernews.com and as soon as I was done filling out my account information -including Credit Card info- I started getting blocked. I could only access the site again (with Chrome AND Internet Explorer) if I used a proxy server.
Imagine you can't access a site because your IP has been blocked. There's no message other than your browser telling you it can't load the site. THAT is what happens. If I use a proxy server, I can access the site again... but NOT log in.
This happened right after I signed up for an account. That means they got my info and then blocked my IP.
