    .....while using Peerblock since the changeover. I don't have any problems on any other sites I visit. Just wondering if ADV is collecting information in regards to where we spend most of our time for future advertising targeting?. Just curious:-)

    Possibly the IP address of the new server is on one of the blacklists that Peerblock works with/ compares against (which might include your own settings/ lists)

    If you wish to know more, you should look at the logs for what PeerBlock is blocking on the site request. If I remember right, their blocklist is pretty aggressive. You can white-list individual IP's.

    Keep in mind that none of what we're on right now exists for free. Someone's gotta pay the bills somehow.

    No, no information is being gathered from you (Aside from the normal Google analytics that pretty much every site has). It sounds like Peerblock has the new site IP on its list for some reason (Maybe the old user of this IP dealt in anti-P2P dealings).
