Someone on gmane.discuss suggested I look here to see if my IP was
banned on Gmane:

And sure enough, when I looked I found my provider and even the IP I
recieved from them... listed as banned.

This is my IP: (20130821)

The number in parens is a link that reveaks the info below:
  Warning: fopen(/home/httpd/data/news/20130821) [function.fopen]: failed to
  open stream: No such file or directory in
  /home/httpd/gmane/html/stat-day.php on line 19

I suggest you check the cited gmane link above to see if your IP is
similarly banned.

I left word on gmane.discuss of what I've posted above but no one has

Maybe some one here can throw some light on this.
