I got an email from ipowerweb.com:
Unfortunately, we have been forced to suspend your domain account for
the following reason:
For more information about this suspension, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.

There was no reasons, while the account was suspended. Finally, after email conversation, it turned out the problem was “Your account was suspended for hosting phishing pages.”
What is pishing pages? I guess it is those who post comment to ask you to give them bank account so they can transfer huge amount of money from Africa… After some work, the site is back… I feel frustrated that there is technical problems after about one year of operation without big problems.
What a surprise. Someone took homewangjianshuo.com.
There must be a lot of people who forget to input the dot between home and wangjianshuo.com so to bring homewangjianshuo.com some traffic. So they collect the traffic, put it together with other smaller traffic they get from many mis-spelled domains and send it to this site. They must generate some revenue this way.
I feel paranoid that someone started to look into the domain and want to secure more domains. I just bought wangjianshuo.org, wangjianshuo.net and jianshuo.org in case someone take it. The Yahoo! Domain offer of 2.99 USD is cheap enough to secure a domain – but the bad thing is, it offers to new customers only. It is very reasonable though.

Cannot Comment on this Blog?
Shirley, I got your email. I am sorry that you cannot post to this site. Maybe others also face the problem. Let me explain why it happens.
To fight against comment spam, I implemented blacklist.cgi to filter the spams. As you may see, there are many comment spams on this site, and I added many banned URLs and words that commonly used in the spams to ban them. The result is, I am banning about 300 spam attempt every single day using the system.
Unfortunately, your comment may be one of the 300 banned spam. You will see what part of the post is considered “spam-like”. You can either add some dash or dot to workaround it, or write me an email or comment on my site (again, you need to workaround on these words), so I can remove some keywords. To be honest, the system does not always work. The auto detection some times does not always work well. I have ever added common words like “yahoo.com” or even a dot (.) to the ban list. A dot means any alphabetic character – which banned many people from posting for quite some time before I discover. So, it not always work. I tried, but be tolerant with me. :-)
Packing my package and will leave San Jose and be back to Shanghai. The flight will take off around noon, and arrive in Shanghai at 7:45 PM the second day (Dec 15, 2005).
Thanks for everyone’s host, and offering to host me. I may be back to San Jose early next year. Happy Christmas and Happy New Year to you.
