    That's very strange. None of the IPs you have ever connected to this website from are banned from the server, and a connection timeout error suggests that for whatever reason you can't talk to the host connection. If it's just our server, perhaps your firewall is blocking Smogon's IP address. If you know how to, try whitelisting 74.50.98.226 on your anti-virus/firewall software.
