My site, http://alucida.biz, is being blocked by at least one company’s firewall. Can anyone shed any light on why that’s happening? There’s no questionable content on the site!
If you are on shared hosting, your IP address could be compromised because of other sites on the server. You may be getting blocked because of other users on the shared server.

The user who was getting blocked sent me the error message he was receiving:
