Error 403 Forbidden

for reasons of total paranoia, I always access BoundForum via Tor, after all BoundForum is not secure. Occasionally, I am blocked, often mid-post, with the Error 403 message. On the last two occasions, Tor had routed my session through Ukraine and Russia.

Is there anybody, who knows if I should be worried. Is the BoundForum being blocked by the country of origin or is the forum blocking some countries?

Incidentally, when I started typing, I was in an unknown country; now I am in Liberia.

Some countries block sites they believe to contain inappropriate content. With TOR, you are not sure where you are being routed through. Turkey is a country that many things are blocked. I have had a Turkish IP address before when using TOR.

That is more or less what I suspected. This is why, when i am blocked I check the TOR routing and my IP address.

Thank you.
