I had to block some external instances on Masto.host shared hosting.

Here is why and how that can be reverted: masto.host/i-had-to-block-some

This was a tricky decision but couldn't think of a better solution.

If you have any suggestions, please do let me know.

@mastohost I'm trying to read the about (just for pure curiosity) but it seems I can't connect to the host; Firefox complains about connection timing out.

Is the server overloaded or am I behind some blocked IP? (I don't run any instances, so I'm not sure what's going on...)

@juliobiason could you send me the link you are trying to access so I can have a look?

@mastohost "masto.host/i-had-to-block-some

it's being resolved to
[13:18:23] julio.biason@dts-bhs-ovh007s:~$ host masto.host
masto.host has address

DuckDuckGo says my IP is
Your IP address is in Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil


@juliobiason somehow your IP was in CSF on the server where I host Mast.host, could you please check it is working now.

@juliobiason awesome, I had played with rules of CSF because these last days Claro.com.br was sending a lot of login attempts and somehow think I blocked the all requests coming from Brazil to that server :P

Sorry about that, it has nothing to do with the block being discussed, different servers, different situation.

@mastohost Hey, don't worry. Those things happen.

And our internet providers (Claro is a mobile one) aren't the greatest about security and "being a good internet citizen".
