    Why would this be?

    TCF is blocked from many (if not most?) foreign countries.

    I'm here!
    Since when has TCF (HH) been about TiVo? :)
    Makes no sense.

    From looking at some old posts of mine, I've been blocked by #$%#$% Sucuri firewall while trying to access TCF from Germany and South Korea. It looks like I wasn't blocked from Singapore and Japan.

    Turns out that St. Kitts was the only Caribbean location this trip where I was blocked. We passed St. Kitts again overnight between St. Lucia & St.Maarten and AFAIK I picked up a land-based cellular signal from there while sailing by. Didn't get blocked that time, wherever we were.

    Would make more sense to just block signups from known-spammy countries and let existing members in after they've had a certain amount of legitimate post history.

    Right now, it seems totally random and arbitrary which ones are blocked and we don't know until we get bitten by it ourselves.

    Looks like we get blocked if using a VPN as well.

    I used to be able to get to TCF while using Persional Internet Access.

    I was just able to connect using PIA with the endpoint in FL.

    I switched to FL and it worked. So I switched back to TX...and that works now too.
