So, yea I'm so glad MAL's back. I was one of those suckers who thought they were really banned >.> and emailed the banned@myanimelist.net lol.

Anyways, who caused the problem? Was it intentional! O.O

I'm kinda half screwing around but I'd like to hear from yall, thought it be fun. If you were in IRC you'd know the blame first fell on _aero_ , lol. Kinda floated from admin to admin after that.

Also great job admins fixing the problem pretty fast, big thanks to those who where got up at ungodly hours to help out/asses the problem.

I wish I didn't send that email now. It wasn't a bad or angry one but I increased their complain load

Don't recommend me something that is still publishing, unless its close to being finished. Don't recommend me anything that isn't licensed.

I stopped myself from emailing. thought I'd wait a while to see if it was a site error. Glad to see that's all it was. Couldn't think of a good reason that I would have gotten banned. I've been behaiving myself lately - Old age?

I think it was related to the new server, like they didn't allow its internal traffic to access the database or something... I'm very curious though, I hope they explain what happened in a news post. :)

Nobody's fault, most likely just a bug..

As you can see, the banned ip address is 10.2.10.22 which isn't a valid ip address but somehow, it bans everyone including Google search. Speaking of which, I am rather curious as to how Xinil managed to fix it as that he was most likely also banned.
