Why can we not reach talkchess.com from Germany? I get this message:

I can confirm this situation, from few days access is forbidden.

I changed my ip (my provider allows it just by reset router) but it didn't help at all. It looks like many (all?) ip's from Poland were blocked for unknown reason, I don't have such problems on any other site or forum.

Now Im using vpn with UK ip, it works (like one from USA), but what's interesting - vpn's from many other countries don't.

I find it annoying, it won't help if I send my Polish ip to admin for unblock, because my ip changes itself from time to time anyway.

I think that something should be done from the top down, because it isn't normal behavior for international forum like this one.

Seems that all IP from France are banned also, even IP from 4G mobile !
Also tried a Canadian or German proxy without success.

Canada? It is more libertarian than Germany thanking to Trudeau and co.
When Trump got power as President lot of leftist American moved to Canada fearing from the right-side power without establishing.
