I am not sure why, but when I try to access www.stackoverflow.com I get a 403 Access denied error, as if my IP address is banned.

I connected via my work VPN, just to post this question.

I use Stack Overflow a lot, so I would like for it to work normally. I get a static IP from my ISP, so I can't get get a new one easily. What is going on?

I have tried to connect using FF, IE and Chrome, all with the same effect.

Your IP has been banned for anomalous access patterns, most likely -- email [email protected] with details.
