Anyone else have a problem sending emails to jr@rense.com or webmaster@rense.com?
Everytime I try, I get them returned stating that my IP was blocked. Why would my IP be blocked? I've never spammed him. I've only sent them links to articles that I found that might be of importance to put up when I don't see them on their site. I also write my own stuff sometimes. I've had articles and artwork posted on his site a few times. One of my pieces was actually posted as the main art on his site a few years ago. It was the marcel/weatherballoon photo, but I CG'd a gray's head poking in through the window.
Anyways, why am I blocked? Anyone?

Most likely they have fallen victim to an 'email bomb' where numerous zombie servers or computers send thousands of emails per second to their inbox. Not too long ago they suffered denial of service attacks, so this would be in line with that.

It would certainly explain the inbox being full, and if they have installed some overzealous filtering and protection, it would explain some emails being blocked.
