I can’t access the site from my home IP and when I use a VPN to connect it only works for a bit then stops and I have to switch servers to get back. Almost as if I’m being intentionally blocked. Am I the only one having this issue?

Several of the VPNs you're using are located in Europe or Africa. Since the site is hosted in the USA, there are major latency issues with transatlantic communications, with the added issue of VPNs adding their own latency for routing your traffic from your home location, across the ocean, then back again. As far as your home IP, we're not doing anything on the site level to block or discourage the activity in that range. We are for several foreign countries known for spamming, but not that specific range.

Thanks for confirming I guess. I was actually thinking it was targeted and intentional. Maybe it's just my phone. Just to clarify though, when my phone (Firefox on iOS) won't connect to the site at all because it times out, enabling the VPN is what does work. It's just that I have subsequent issues after a few page loads, then switch locations, then it works again. Some US VPN and some foreign. It's basically like I'm on either a page number count or a data cap that kills my connection after X KB down.

Also, if you changed a setting or something. I can't even access the site at all anymore from my phone.

Actually, it may be Firefox on iOS's enhanced tracking protection that was causing the issue. I disabled it just for this site and will see how it works throughout the day.
