I have Comcast cable internet. For nearly a week now I've been unable to access any part of bitcoin.org unless I use a proxy like Tor. I can access it just fine from my mobile phone and from work. Does anyone know if Comcast is blocking the site or something?

I use Comcrap and it works fine for me. Might be some routing issue.

Same problem if you use the IP?

I did have the same problem even with the IP. But I went to Comcast tech support and they were able to resolve the problem at their end, so I guess it was just incompetence and not malice.
