We have sweeping bans on entire IP ranges because they've been found to be mostly spammers.  You've accidentally been assigned one via your fanatic address.

With that said, reset your modem and allow it to change your IP address.  That should resolve your issue.

Yup.
Unplug the modem you use to connect to your ISP with and leave it disconnected for at least 10 minutes.

When you plug it back in, it'll grab a new IP address and you should be good to go.
