Uh... Blacklisted? What?


So here I am, repeatedly tapping F5 on the Woot page, when I suddenly get the urge to talk about Woot. I type in the IRC URL then wait for Chatzilla to open up. Aahh, finally. Time for some chatting. What? Server timeout? No biggie, happens sometimes. Wait, another server timeout? Is that the word banned? WHAT!?!? BANNED!?!? MY IP ADDRESS IS BLACKLISTED!?!? WHAT FOR?!?!

I’m confused. I’ve done nothing, why would my IP address be blacklisted, then banned from IRC for 1440 minutes?
