Dear Alexander, Thank you for your report. You are right about not being blocked, in case of an access restriction, the error message clearly states the cause. We have investigated the query you have mentioned throughly. In cases of no results, what we have received at our side was the word "АS43668" with the letter A written in Cyrillic Capital Letter А. That is U+0410 instead of U+0041 which was also used in the original email in this thread as well and this results in no objects found. We will shortly add a feature to append a comment to the output whenever non-ascii characters are supplied in the query string. If this should happen again, it will be clear to the client that these characters have been used. Kind Regards, Kaveh. --- Kaveh Ranjbar, RIPE NCC Database Group Manager On Aug 5, 2012, at 11:28 PM, Alexander Shikov <a.shikov at itcons.net.ua> wrote: > On Sun, Aug 05, 2012 at 10:18:31PM +0200, William Weber wrote: >> You are likely blacklisted, query works fine for me also from Ukrainian 193.* PI space >> (Routed at Ukrtelecom) > > I don't think I'm blacklisted.
