    It would appear as though 50.116.39.21 has been banned, which is a VPN server for Psiphon located in Atlanta, Georgia. This would occasionally make it an issue for people using it to log in if they were running the VPN in "Fastest Country" or "US" mode

    Unbanned that IP address. I think it was made by mistake while banning a user.

    Looks like 66.228.39.143 has been banned this time around

    I'm kind of starting to see the merit of leaving VPNs banned, though, given that two of the IPs of just this one have been banned by people trying to evade an IP ban, it would seem

    Why are you using a VPN?

    I use it occasionally to get around campus wifi restrictions and while I'm torrenting stuff. I'll just turn it off whenever I'm on GBAtemp

    Be careful when torrenting on campus networks. Don't become another statistic.

    They block p2p anyway, so I only do that at home or a library
