IP Blocked

When attempting to post I have today started getting a warning that my IP has been blocked and a link to Spamhaus. I can only post if I use a VPN. Is this a genuine alert? I haven't clicked on the link. Using adblock Browser on android but problem same on Chrome.

    It is not Adblock plus because I use that all the time and only very rarely have difficulties. Try and reset your router. Switch it off and switch it back on again - secret IT remedy!

    Same for me - started yesterday and is whilst I am connected though my work network.

    EDIT - although clearly it is fixed now (or the IP address has changed).

    FWIW the issue I was having went away on its own but someone else commented on suffering the same problem in Cake Shop earlier.

    I had this issue this afternoon using my mobile phone data connection. I swapped to a WiFi hotspot and got the same message (but different IP address).
    At home now (some hours later) and it works fine.

    I keep getting this aswell when using my work network. I have to fill in a form with Spamhaus to get it unblocked every time / day.
