Do you have a static or a dynamic IP address?
Technically speaking it's a dynamic IP address, however I have cable internet with virgin media (aka ntl) and a wireless router, and the IP address can stay the same for months on end. Plus I like the IP addy I have now... very easy to remember
Are you going to suggest that I restart my modem and router a few times until I get a fresh IP address from my ISP? That would eliminate the blacklisting problem I guess.
