Censoring web site JudicialWatch.org

Censoring web site JudicialWatch.org

It appears that even after clearing all History, etc., that Comcast is not allowing access to www.JudicialWatch.org.  Could someone please explain that?

Probably won't help:

C>nslookup www.judicialwatch.org 75.75.75.75
Server:  cdns01.comcast.net
Address:  75.75.75.75
*** cdns01.comcast.net can't find www.judicialwatch.org: Server failed

But:

C>nslookup www.judicialwatch.org 8.8.8.8
Server:  google-public-dns-a.google.com
Address:  8.8.8.8
Non-authoritative answer:
Name:    judicialwatch.org
Address:  184.106.75.114
Aliases:  www.judicialwatch.org

And:

C>nslookup www.judicialwatch.org 4.2.2.2
Server:  b.resolvers.Level3.net
Address:  4.2.2.2

It worked.  Thanks.  I'm curious as to why it suddently happened if you have a guess?

No problem - something similar happened to me when I switched from the Comcast DNS servers to Open DNS (though I use CloudFlare's 1.1.1.1 now because they have IPv6 support).
