I’ve been unable to ping to PPS for the past week. Frankly, I have no idea why. I don’t multi-ping, I don’t re-ping old posts, and I’m very sure that I’ve been abiding to PPS policies since the first day I found it… which is roughly two years ago.
I wrote the following email to pps(at)petalingstreet.org after I’ve confirmed that my pings are not getting through:
Hi Aizuddin (or who’s reading this),
I noticed that my pings from HTNet (heritage-tech.net) didn’t get through since yesterday. At first I though it might be some minor glitch, but I’m pretty sure now that it’s definitely an issue.
Is my domain or IP address blocked somehow? If so, could I know why and what was the offending ping that got me blocked. If it was an IP based blocking, I’d just like to let you know that I am on shared hosting.
I’ve been pinging PPS for two years plus and am very sure I didn’t violate any of the PPS Policies.
Looking forward to your feedback.
So far, I haven’t receive any replies to that email. Probably Aizuddin and the folks at PPS are busy with other projects.
I guess if this post fails to go through as well, I probably won’t ping PPS again. If this is the case then I would just like to say “Thank You” to everyone who made PPS possible… it was a useful tool for me and probably thousands of other Malaysian bloggers.
