Default Board link redirecting to passport now?

I just got word that this is happening for some but not others. Peculiar.

This was happening for me, I asked on twitter and April had no problems. Finally found the original IP address rather than going through DNS... http://207.126.54.101/

Might have been a change that propagated through some DNS servers, but not others...

Thanks for the original IP address I've been given from matineeidyll outside of here. I'm from Italy and the bbs links send me only to the passport.
And the Google search too.
Thanks Dug for the IP!

hitting bbs.foofighters.com worked a couple of times today. Once I went to post and it took me to passport...

the 207. ... works reliably for me right now.

Yeah this is going to start happening to everyone as their DNS cache updates, it varies per ISP. As has been posted for now you can access via the IP which will always work, although some things won't load.

There is nothing I can do about it, I've asked Jill to check with management on it.
