I'm using an ancient perl-based LJ client, jlj, to post (it's easy and shell-based), and has a number of features I've grown used to. I'm presently revamping it to use more modern auth.
However, for about the past month, it seems that as soon as I attempt to log in, I get connection closed, no errors returned, no nada.
What seems to be worse is that it is doing this specifically on my host (188.8.131.52), as I tried via telnet from another host in another state and got in fine.
If there's some sort of blocklist in play, how would I find out how to clear it up, or apply for an exemption?
