why is comcast xfinty blocking www.drudgereport.com?  i know there is a block as i can get to the drudge on via the same devices on my other service provider.  cant get to drudge on comcast as of 1/1/18.  don't you all realize we will just cancel service if you do this kind of garbage?


i cant seam to get in touch with a comcast rep to fix issue either

I can reach the site as well. When one customer cannot reach a site but others can, it usually means the site is blocking that customer's public Comcast IP. You might try asking the site's admins for help with this. You can look up your IP at "https://www.google.com/search?q=IP".

What does a trace to www.drudgereport.com show? In Windows, open a Command Prompt window, enter

    tracert www.drudgereport.com

and post the output. Mine looks like:

Drudge is blocked for me as well. Why all of a sudden did this happen?
