SillyDog701 ( http://sillydog.org/ ) has been a great Netscape user supporting website since 1999 starting with Netscape Browser Archive ( http://sillydog.org/narchive/ ). Recently, SillyDog701 expanded the Netscape related support to MozInfo701 ( http://moz.sillydog.org/ )and Switch Project ( http://switch.sillydog.org/ ).

It is a shame that they are locking out another Netscape supporting website, SillyDog701. Instead of uniting Netscape supporting sites, they opt to divide and making enemies.

It's been confirmed that my IP address has been banned by ufaq.org

As usual, SillyDog701 has never banned anyone from accessing SillyDog701 and retrieve information from SillyDog701.

However, this incident showed the ridiculous actions by ufaq.org. And SillyDog701 decided to respond by not banning back in return.

This is an official announcement.

SillyDog701 responded with not banning back in return to their banning.

SillyDog701 is a great Netscape supporting website, and SillyDog701 believes denying any person's access to obtain information is not a wise choice.

SillyDog701 is always trying to build a better community with many other websites. Netscape does not have many users or communities. With only a few major user supporting sites reminding, we shall all work together to make Netscape/Mozilla users. It is really disappointing that some of them chose to compete and cut off the friendship.

SillyDog701 can't control other websites, but as always, SillyDog701 strives to provide a better Netscape/Mozilla community.
