[Framagit] Is my IP blocked from accessing FramaGit?


Firefox says « The connection has timed out ». $ ping shows 100% packet loss. $ tracepath framagit.org shows 12: froggie2.framasoft.org and then no reply for further 30 hops. It ends with Too many hops: pmtu 1480.

I can access framagit.org using webproxy. Is my IP blocked by framagit or is it my ISP? My public IP is:


It’s probably us :-/
We had a lot, lot of spam from India, China and Vietnam. We’re a small team and we can’t moderate so much spam. We even post that we’re open to put some money on that issue https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/-/issues/201788#note_413025161 - The honeypot feature flag reduce the spam wave, but there’s still too much false-positive to unblock your country. And we’re really, really sorry for that :-/

Oh! This sucks. Instead of blocking the offending IPs blocking the whole country is a bit too much IMHO. But I understand.

It’s just that after reading yesterday’s Mobilizon announcement I wanted to check the source code. Anyways, will use webproxy to access FramaGit.

Only regret I have is that I closed multiple FramaGit projects tabs in last couple of days thinking that FramaGit was shut down along with other Frama services scheduled for closure. A static page with « Your IP is banned due to spam » would have been really helpful.

Anyways, thanks for the reply! :slight_smile:

Well, the IP addresses are quite never the same, we had no choice.

We are really sorry of the situation and the measures we had to take.
