Evidence for domain added to "toxic domains" list

Our domain has been added to the "toxic domains" list, which is now causing partner projects to no longer be able to interface with us, as they use StopForumSpam to keep their forums clean. There must be a reason of some sort for this, but I'm not able to discover it for domains that are flagged in this way.

If I search for the domain here, there are no results. It was only by downloading the toxic_domains_whole.txt file that we were able to discover that we are getting blocked. Can our domain be reviewed for removal from this list?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I don't have any information to share but I got a bad feeling about this.

I sent pedigree a PM an hour or so ago with the link of this thread.

Thanks, Alex. I'm just seeing this, as I think I needed to adjust my notification settings... hopefully that works next time.

I'll look forward to hearing what pedigree thinks of it.

I've removed it, and Im not sure why it was there.  Have you recently purchased it?  It was added in November last year, and strangely the field in the database that records why it was added, is empty

Re: Evidence for domain added to "toxic domains" list

We've had the domain for over 15 years at this point, so nothing has changed. It could have been the work of a competitor or some other antagonist. But regardless, thank you for looking into it and removing the listing, we sure appreciate it! And if there ever is a legitimate reason for trouble with our domain, we'll be glad to address it.

Thanks again for the support --
